A Public Service employee is entitled to an allowance of 17.5% of 4 weeks' salary that is paid as a loading in addition to the employee's normal salary. The maximum allowance payable under this provision will not exceed an amount calculated at 17.5% of the salary at the top of VPS Grade 4. The allowance is paid automatically when an employee takes a period of annual leave.
Annual leave loading is calculated on the employee's salary at the time the annual leave is taken, including any fortnightly allowances the employee is receiving at the time. For Incident Response Officers, the allowance in lieu of payment for overtime is included in the calculation of the allowance.
