Your questions – March 2012

1. When an employee is out on sick leave, do they continue to earn annual leave entitlement for the time they are absent?

2. What options do we have as a business if we run into some temporary financial difficulty, can we put staff on short term or lay them off on a temporary basis for a few weeks?

3. How do I go about identifying the skills and competencies we need as a business so that we can be sure we are able to implement our strategy and achieve our defined goals?
