He said 13 vacancies had been frozen for the year and the city had begun its “online capacity to provide services and centralize customer service.” WALGA applied on behalf of the local government sector in Western Australia and the Northern Territory to adopt provisions that would allow annual leave to be paid to the LGIA. These submissions were filed in April 2014 in collaboration with other local government federations in the state and territory. The Fair Work Committee also made a preliminary decision to include a provision allowing employers to grant annual leave in advance and deduct sums for each leave that still results from notice payments to the LGIA. However, an employer may deduct from severance pay only if the workers and employers have agreed in advance to take leave. Management of a worker on excessive annual leave The Fair Work Commission`s Full Bench also made an interim decision to include a provision allowing employers to order a worker to make “excessive” annual provisions. Interested parties are required to submit written comments to the Fair Work Commission by Monday, 13 July at 4 p.m. in order to consider the text of the proposed provisions and to include the proposed provisions in all modern distinctions (including the LGIA). WALGA Employee Relations invites the sector to give its opinion on the text of the proposed provisions and on the advisability of including the proposed provisions in the LGIA. We will then consider filing a written filing on behalf of the municipal sector. Please provide feedback by Thursday, July 9 at 5:00 p.m.
WALGA Employee Relations` preliminary view is that these are welcome changes as they allow a local government employer to find greater flexibility in the agreement on how a worker can use their annual leave provisions. Please note that these provisions only apply to personnel under the LGIA or a company agreement if the terms of the LGIA are included in this company agreement.

The proposed provisions for the payment of annual leave and the granting of annual leave in advance have been published in the form of draft decisions and can be found here.
