Setting up sick or personal leave

Most full-time and part-time employees are entitled to a minimum number of paid sick leave days per year, based on their ordinary hours of work. It can be used for a few reasons, so it's also called personal leave. For unpaid leave see Leave without pay.

To clarify the personal leave your employees are entitled to, visit the Fair Work website.

MYOB comes with default pay items to take care of paying and accruing personal leave for both salaried and hourly-paid employees – all you need to do is assign them to your employees. What's a pay item?

Once you're set up, you can include personal leave in your employees' pays. Find out about Paying leave.
