Jade has been working for Sally’s Home Beauty Service for 1 year on a full-time basis as a beauty therapist. She works 38 hours per week between Monday and Friday and is paid $22.00 per hour.
Jade has applied in writing to her employer Hayley to take 3 weeks of annual leave as she is renovating her house. Hayley approves her annual leave request. While Jade is on annual leave, she receives her ordinary rate of pay and an additional 17.5% leave loading. This is calculated as follows:
$22.00 X 38 hours per week = $836.00 + 17.5% = $982.30 per week
