What you need to know
What can we say? Workday is a fun place to work, with lots of smart, interesting people. Still, you may occasionally need a break from all the awesomeness. That’s why we offer paid public holidays, paid annual leave, and an array of leave options that can help you rest, recharge, and take care of yourself—or your family members.

All full-time employees have 27 days of annual leave per year. Part-time and fixed-term employees’ annual leave is prorated from 27 days.
You may carry over up to five days to be used by 31 March of the following year.
Once you have passed your probationary period, you receive 30 days of paid sick leave each year. Additional days of sick leave are unpaid.
Workday will continue your pay while you perform your civic duty.
Take your time
All time-off requests must be submitted via Workday. You can also view your time-off balances and see an overview of your time-off history.
How to request time away
- Log in to Workday, select the Time Off icon or go to Actions in your profile, and find Time and Leave.
- Select Request Time off, select the Type you need from the list, and fill in the details.
- Click Submit, and a Workday notification will be sent to your manager for approval.
Some types of time off need to be initiated in Workday by your manager or People & Purpose, and you will not be able to find them on your list of leave options. In these cases, contact your manager with your request, or submit a People Guide Request.
