Note:  Treats part-time employees as full-time (i.e accrued hours are divided by 37.5hr to calculate number of weeks).

Explanatory Notes:

  1. In accordance with the Corruption and Crime Commission Industrial Agreement 2013, and the previous Parliamentary Question 1532 in August 2018, annual leave is defined as accrued as at 31 December, therefore balances will be significantly higher in December than in June. This is due to the fact that employees will clear accrued leave in the following calendar year.
  2. Parliamentary question 1938 has also asked for information for accrued annual leave of 4 weeks or less which was not requested as part of Parliamentary Question 1532.
