What is MyPortal?
Leave entitlements for all employees covered by national workplace laws are included in the National Employment Standards (NES).
From 1 January 2010, the NES replaced the non-pay rate provisions of the Australian Fair Pay and Conditions Standard (the Standard). If you are covered by the national workplace laws, the minimum entitlements in the NES apply to you regardless of your industrial instrument or contract of employment.
