/

In case of authorization, the agreement is subject to the formal approval of the Fair Work Commission. Clause 15 contains a statement of intent that the VPS Agreement as a whole is to be interpreted in accordance with the mobility principles and an explicit obligation for the parties to work towards the operationalisation of the mobility principles during the term of the agreement. This directive contains guidelines for clause 63 of the VPS Agreement, which specifies that an employee may request leave without pay (LWOP) for any purpose and that the employer may grant it on a case-by-case basis. This directive provides guidance on clause 41 of the VPS Agreement, which describes the right of an employee (with the exception of an occasioned employee) to paid annual leave. Among the most important and generous changes introduced by the VPS agreement is the new and improved right to parental leave. If you have any questions about the VPS agreement, please send an email to vpsagreement2020@dpc.vic.gov.au (external link).

This Directive contains guidelines on clause 48 of the VPS Agreement, which describes the range of employment supports for workers who are victims of domestic violence, including access to a maximum of 20 days of paid leave.
