             (2)  If:

                     (a)  approval of a spending proposal has been given in writing; and

Part 11Transferring leave entitlements—payments when employees move between Agencies etc

  

31  Application of Part 11

             (1)  This Part applies if

                     (a)  an employee in an Agency (the old employer) moves to another Agency, a Commonwealth authority or the High Court of Australia, (the new employer); and

                     (b)  some or all of the employee’s accrued leave entitlements are transferred to the new employer as part of the employee’s move; and

                     (c)  the move is not a direct consequence of the transfer of a government function.

Note:          Agency is defined in section 5 of the Act. It includes a Department of State, a Department of the Parliament and an Agency prescribed by the FMA Regulations.

             (2)  In this regulation:

Commonwealth authority has the same meaning as in the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997.

32  Agencies to co‑operate

                   The old employer must give reasonable assistance necessary for the new employer to prepare the invoice for the purposes of regulation 33, including information in writing about the employee’s entitlements.

33  Payment within 30 days of a correctly rendered invoice

             (1)  Within 30 days of the receipt of a correctly rendered invoice from the new employer, the old employer must pay to the new employer an amount equal to the sum of the value, worked out on the basis of the employee’s salary immediately before leaving the old employer, of:

                     (a)  the employee’s annual leave entitlement at that time; and

                     (b)  95% of the employee’s long service leave entitlement at that time.

Note:          Where, for example, an employee has moved from the old employer to the new employer for a short period (and will be returning to the old employer), the employers may agree that it is not efficient for the new employer to send an invoice and for the old employer to pay an amount under this regulation (as long as the employee will not be deprived of access to relevant leave).

             (2)  In subregulation (1):

long service leave entitlement, for an employee, means:

                     (a)  the period of long service leave to which the employee is legally entitled; or

                     (b)  if the employee is not legally entitled to any long service leave—the amount worked out by multiplying the notional amount of long service leave to which the employee is entitled for a year of service by the weighting factor set out in the following table that applies to the number of years of service the employee has completed.

34  Specific rules affecting members of the Defence Force

             (1)  If:

                     (a)  the employee was engaged by the old employer as a member of the Defence Force; and

                     (b)  the employee is engaged by the new employer in a capacity other than as a member of the Defence Force; and

                     (c)  the employee is not legally entitled to any long service leave immediately before becoming engaged in the new employer; and

                     (d)  the employee’s salary, immediately before moving from the old employer, is greater than the employee’s salary immediately on moving to the new employer;

the value of the employee’s long service leave entitlement is to be worked out on the basis of the employee’s salary immediately on moving to the new employer.

             (2) In subregulation (1):

long service leave entitlement, for an employee, has the meaning given by subregulation 33(2).
