Flexi-time and leave arrangements

Flexi-time and working from home

Our Home Based Work Policy does not allow flexi-time credit hours to be accrued on the days you work from home.

During this rapid transition to working from home, the line between work, home and family can become blurred and we want to ensure your health and wellbeing as well as maintain the continuity of our services.

If you find that you need to be working more than your normal weekly hours (e.g. 37.5 hours per week), please have a conversation with your manager to discuss:

  • strategies that might help with your workload.
  • how long you think you might have to work additional hours; and
  • how many additional hours you will have to work.

Accrual of credit hours should not occur frequently.

Leave arrangements in the time of COVID-19

The Commissioner for Public Sector Employment has invoked some supplementary leave provisions for COVID-19. Please take a look at the Determination document, which explains more about Carer's Leave and other leave provisions available to public sector employees.
