Planning and Applying for Recreational Leave
- Annual Leave will be taken at a time or times that are mutually convenient to the University and the Staff member;
- Where eligible, a staff member may elect to cash out a portion of their Annual Leave using the Request for Cashing out Annual Leave form.
- Once you have discussed and agreed on your leave arrangements with your nominated supervisor, you should submit your application for annual leave through Staff Connect.
- ACU staff have access to a range of discounts on accommodation, flights and car hire for their personal travel.
In the first instance, speak to your nominated supervisor about your leave plan and any other leave arrangements in your work area. If you then require further advice, contact the HR Advisory Service on firstname.lastname@example.org or call extension 4222.
