FAIR WORK ACT 2009 - SECT 79

Interaction with paid leave

             (1)  This Subdivision (except for subsections (2) and (3)) does not prevent an employee from taking any other kind of paid leave while he or she is taking unpaid parental leave. If the employee does so, the taking of that other paid leave does not break the continuity of the period of unpaid parental leave.

Note:          For example, if the employee has paid annual leave available, he or she may (with the employer's agreement) take some or all of that paid annual leave at the same time as the unpaid parental leave.

             (2)  An employee is not entitled to take paid personal/carer's leave or compassionate leave while he or she is taking unpaid parental leave.

             (3)  An employee is not entitled to any payment under Division 8 (which deals with community service leave) in relation to activities the employee engages in while taking unpaid parental leave.
