WorkCover NSW has received legal advice which could mean employers are no longer obliged to allocate leave entitlements to employees off work on Compensation.

    In relation to Annual Leave not accruing - this is something The Association for Payroll Specialists wrote to NSW WorkCover about when the Fair Work Act commenced disagreeing with advice it was giving to clients. It is sad it has taken NSW WorkCover over 2 years to find this out for themselves.
    However in NSW the LSL act says that LSL accrues when absent due to illness and injury and The Associationfor Payroll Specialists believes that this includes periods of absence on WorkCover.
