Holiday I didn't ask for.
I am an EN working in a public hospital and have been rostered a day of annual leave on the next roster that I did not request. Is this allowed?
No. You cannot be directed to take annual leave unless you have been given a minimum of 28 days notice. The Public Health System Nurses' and Midwives' (State) Award 2011 at sub clause (vii) (c) of clause 30, Annual Leave, states:
"The employer shall give each employee, where practicable, three months notice of the date upon which he or she will enter upon leave and in any event, such notice shall not be less than 28 days."
