What’s ‘leave’ got to do with it?

Not a week goes by at the AMA (WA) without one of our Workplace Relations team members receiving a query from a doctor about leave.


“Should I even bother putting in a written application for leave?”

“What about notice periods?”

“And leave cover? Who is going to do my work?”

The questions keep coming and we continue to assist members to achieve the best outcomes possible.
