Impact of parental leave on payment rate for annual leave

When an employee becomes entitled to annual leave during their parental leave and in the next 12 months after their return, the dollar value of this leave is paid at the employee’s average weekly earnings (AWE) and not the higher of AWE or Ordinary Weekly Pay meaning the value of leave taken maybe reduced significantly.
