We have prepared an information sheet in relation to Covid Leave that looks at the Fair Work rulings. Please check with your particular Award in case there are unique provisions.

Coronavirus & Leave Entitlements


  1. If an employee is Covid positive – then sick leave would apply.
  2. If an employee is isolating due to being a close contact and returns a negative test – Annual leave, RDO, LSL will apply, but not sick leave.
  3. If they are required to stay home to provide care (this would make them a close contact) – 3 days Carers Leave (this is taken from their sick leave accrual) and then other leave entitlements.

We hope this helps.
