Preparing for the approaching festive season. (Last Updated On: October 7, 2016)

Do you find that the festive season is a quiet period for your business and you would like to either shut down or operate with skeleton staff?

Now is the time to start planning and notifying your employees of your staffing arrangements for the festive season. Many Modern Awards allow you to direct staff to take annual leave, or unpaid leave where annual leave has been exhausted, during a close down period. The Modern Awards vary as to how much notice you need to provide and whether you can direct staff to take annual or unpaid leave.

If you are unsure about how much notice of shut down you need to give your employees for this festive season or are unsure of the specific requirements contained in the Modern Award that is applicable to your employees, our Advice team are here to help. Call us on 1300 651 415 for assistance.
