7.4.1 Leave entitlements

Prior service with the University on a fixed-term basis will be recognised for the purpose of accruing all leave entitlements provided there is no break in service.

Any prior service with the University will be recognised towards the staff member's accumulation of long service leave entitlements provided the break in service does not exceed three months. In this instance, any accrued sick leave entitlement will also be recognised.

In the case of service completed as a sessional staff member, service with breaks exceeding three months will also be recognised where it is a result of a break between consecutive semesters.
