All nurses and midwives working in the private and aged care sectors are entitled to personal/carer’s leave and compassionate leave. This is because both these types of leave come under the National Employment Standards (NES)—10 minimum workplace conditions which apply to all employees covered by the national workplace relations system. Employers who contravene the NES may be fined up to $12,600 for an individual and $63,000 for a corporation.
