A worker who wishes to extend his leave without being paid must reapply for leave. Unpaid leave should not be extended if no clear reason is given for another leave or if the worker simply defers a decision on his or her future with the department.

In some cases, an employer may consider that more than one sanction should be applied in order to adequately remedy proven wrongdoing, without having to resort to termination of employment. For obvious reasons, it is preferable, in such cases, to make it clear that this approach is compatible with the enterprise agreement. The basis for which a worker can access his personal/acquired care leave has been changed and workers now have the express right to take paid personal/care leave for the purposes of the agreement: if the agreement is approved, the agreement will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for formal approval.
