Accruing leave during unpaid leave
Depending on your employment arrangements, you might need to prevent leave entitlements, like annual leave and personal leave, from accruing during unpaid leave. To check your leave entitlement obligations, visit the Fair Work website.
To prevent an entitlement from accruing during unpaid leave, open the entitlement category (Payroll > Payroll categories > Entitlements > open the entitlement), click Exempt and select the Unpaid Leave wage category. If the Exempt button is not active, it means the entitlement category is not set up to calculate leave based on a percentage of gross hours.
