CCIQ 101 Series: Community Service Leave

Has one of your employees had the call up for jury duty lately or to help out in their volunteer organisation in its time of need? While they may be performing their civic duty, your business could be left worse off due to their absence.

Our next 101 Series session is about Community Service Leave, an entitlement which allows employees to take time off for their community service obligations. Understanding how this entitlement is applied can be difficult, especially when attempting to dismiss an employee during community service leave can attract severe penalties.  

Your ticket price includes:

  • A copy of CCIQ's The Community Service Leave Guide, valued over $250  

  • Attendance to the 1-hour session 

Why you should attend:

Our CCIQ Employer Assistance advisors will provide answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about Community Service Leave with basic fundamentals of the topic. The information outlined in the free guide reflects only current legislation and you can count on it to help you implement best practice policies in your workplace.

You will learn: 

  • What you are required to pay employees in jury service
  • What the courts pay for jury service in Queensland
  • How employees engaged in an emergency service are protected under the Fair Work Act
  • Pay entitlements for employees engaged in an emergency management activity
