According to National Employment Standards (NES), all workers covered by the national labour relations regime, with the exception of casual workers, are entitled to annual leave of at least four weeks per year or five weeks for certain shiftworkers. According to recent decisions of the Fair Work Commission, most modern rewards allow, in certain circumstances, employees who apply to pay annual leave.  A worker is entitled to an additional week`s leave if he or she is subject to a company agreement or a modern contract of employment and is defined as a shiftworker within the meaning of the NES. For these purposes, workers without bonuses/agreements are shiftworkers if they meet the requirements of section 87(3)-(5) of the Fair Work Act 2009. The Fair Work Commission has developed a model agreement for the payment of annual leave to help employers and workers. This form has been regularly checked. No substantial changes have been made. . . .
