      Reply to Georgina: Yes, annual leave entitlement applies to anyone employed for more than 4 months. Full sick leave entitlement kicks in after 6 months – if you are a five day per week worker, sick leve entitlement is 30 days in a three year cycle.

      Reply to Gloria: If the employee is employed for more than 4 months, she is entitled to accrue annual leave. During the first 6 months of employment, sick leave accrues at 1 day’s leave per 26 days worked.
