Employers shamefully refusing upfront pandemic leave

22 February, 2022

Our union is calling on school employers to provide immediate access to paid pandemic leave for staff who test positive to COVID-19 or are exposed to the virus and required to comply with public health directives.  

Unfortunately, employers in the non-government education sector are continuing to deny employees immediate access to paid pandemic leave, instead requiring them to exhaust their entire accrual of personal/sick leave prior to using any paid pandemic leave at all.
