Home - Does unpaid leave count towards service?
April 26, 2020 on chapter Other types of leave

How does a period of unpaid leave (taken within the probation period) impact on the timeframe for any unfair dismissal claim?

Under section 22 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (FW Act), a period of unpaid leave will generally not count towards service. This means any period of unpaid absence will generally not count towards a probation period. Under sections 382-384 of the FW Act, an employee who has completed at least 6 months’ service is protected from unfair dismissal (or 12 months in the case of a small business employer).
