New figures from Roy Morgan show that Australians in paid employment have over 146 million day’ worth of annual leave accrued in total; this is up 11 million days (+8.3%) on a year ago. The accrued annual leave equates to an average of just over 16 days for each paid worker in Australia. Only 10% of paid workers have no annual leave owed to them, while a further 13% have up to 2 weeks accrued. Nearly a quarter of paid workers (23%) have between two and four weeks of annual leave accrued, and another tenth have around a month owed to them. More than a fifth of paid workers (21%), have at least five weeks’ worth as yet unused. These results are from the Roy Morgan Single Source survey, derived from in-depth face-to-face interviews with around 50,000 Australians each year in their homes.
