Did you know … about full pay annual leave entitlements following return from parental leave?

Unlike most employees who only get paid a proportion of normal pay for annual leave in the year after parental leave, if you are employed on the ASMS DHB MECA you’re entitled to annual leave on full pay after you return from parental leave.

Clause 23 of the DHB MECA provides for annual leave on full pay – not the averaging formula used in the Holidays Act. Read clause 23 here: https://www.asms.org.nz/clause-23/

 

This carries over to Clause 28 of the MECA that also entitles you, after parental leave, to return to the same or a similar position you held prior to the leave. Read clause 28 here: https://www.asms.org.nz/clause-28/
