List of awards where unpaid pandemic leave (Schedule X) no longer applies

Published 1 July 2020 | Updated 31 August 2020

On 8 April 2020, the Fair Work Commission (the Commission) made determinations external-icon.png varying 99 awards, adding unpaid pandemic leave and annual leave flexibility.

The determinations inserted a temporary new Schedule X into these awards, which provided 2 weeks of unpaid pandemic leave and the ability to take twice as much annual leave at half their normal pay if their employer agreed.

The Commission has extended how long Schedule X applies for in many of these awards, with different end dates in each award.

For the rest of the awards, Schedule X stopped operating on 30 June. This means that employers and employees covered by these awards can no longer use these provisions.

This page lists the awards that used to have Schedule X but don’t any more, and when it stopped applying.

If your award isn’t listed here, go to Unpaid pandemic leave and annual leave changes in awards.

Use Find my award if you’re not sure which award applies to you.

When did Schedule X stop operating in my award?

The table below lists the date the unpaid pandemic leave and annual leave at half pay provisions stopped operating in each of the affected awards.

If an employee took leave under Schedule X, the leave needs to have started before the end date.
