Leave

Leave, other than sick leave and maternity leave, is granted subject to the exigencies of the service. Staff are encouraged to take their leave provided that the operational needs of the public service are met. Sick leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, study leave and unpaid leave are granted on a need basis.

Rules have been set out in the Civil Service Regulations.

The leave earning rate normally depends on the officer's terms of appointment, years of service and salary.
