Award update – Textile, Clothing, Footwear and Associated Industries Award 2010. (Last Updated On: September 4, 2017)

The Fair Work Commission made minor changes to the Textile, Clothing, Footwear and Associated Industries Award 2010.

The changes centre around the “Requirement to take annual leave” clause, which has been replaced with a model clause dealing with excessive leave accruals. Some of the key changes are:

  • an employee has an excessive leave accrual if they have accrued more than eight weeks’ paid annual leave (10 weeks for shiftworkers)
  • if the employer and employee have genuinely tried and failed to agree on how to reduce or eliminate the excessive annual leave balance, the employer may direct the employee with an excessive leave accrual, in writing, to take one or more periods of paid annual leave provided the following conditions are met:
    • the employee will still have a remaining accrued entitlement to paid annual leave of at least six weeks
    • the directed period of leave must be greater than one week
    • the direction must not require the employee to take leave less than eight weeks before and not more than 12 months after the direction is given.
