I've been working for my current employer, a large company, for seven months. My sick leave balance is showing zero, even though I haven't taken any sick leave. It's certainly an oversight, process error, or error with the web leave system, and as soon as I point it out it will no doubt be fixed. I just want a little bit of information first.
My contract and the legislation says you get 5 days sick leave after 6 months employment. Do you get that full 5 days entitlement immediately as soon as that 6 month period is up, or does it accumyulate over the year? The government employment page isn't clear. I suspect you get the full entitlement immediately.
