Leave and public holidays

MOP(S) Act employees are entitled to take leave with approval from their employing parliamentarian.

MOP(S) Act employees can apply for leave through PEMS. More complex leave enquiries should be submitted to MOPSPay&Conditions@finance.gov.au. Please discuss leave with your employing parliamentarian before submitting your leave application.

Parliamentarians are responsible for managing their employees’ leave. MOP(S) Act employees should have regular discussions and consider opportunities to use their accrued annual leave each year. Both parliamentarians and MOP(S) Act employees can actively monitor leave balances and view leave calendars through PEMS.
