Summary of Changes from Previous Version

This is the second version of the Leave and Public Holidays Procedure published on the University's new Policy Management System, the Guide (Mark II). The Procedure has been comprehensively overhauled to:

a. reflect the changes required as part of the implementation of DeakinPeople and provides further clarification of leave categories.

b. articulate the University’s position on parental leave in that that staff who have received parental leave payments are no longer required to “pay back” any portion of their paid leave if they decide not to return to work at the University.

c. capture the requirement for staff with excess recreation and long service leave to use this leave during the period of their birth-related leave.
