Annual Leave

The Organisation of Working Time Act gives all full time employees a statutory minimum of four working weeks Annual Leave. Annual Leave allowances in the civil service are covered by Circular 27 of 2003 Annual Leave (amended by Circular 06 of 2011 Annual Leave and Privilege Days which followed the abolition of Privilege Days and increased Annual Leave allowances by two days) which lays out the leave allowances for grades in the civil service. These allowances also include leave in excess of the statutory minimum.
