Northern Territory Government Gazette No. G15, 10 April 2019 Page 11 Purchase of Additional Leave 41 Subject to the approval of the NTA, the Commissioner who has completed 12 months continuous service may purchase between one (1) and six(6) weeks additional leave per year in accordance with the same terms applying to an ongoing Senior Administrative Officer 2 in the Northern Territory Public Sector. Community service leave 42 The Commissioner is entitled to take paid community service leave for the purposes of jury service or a voluntary emergency activity as approved by the NTA. 43 The Commissioners salary will be reduced by the total amount of jury service pay received by him. Long Service Leave 44 The Commissioner will be entitled to three (3) calendar months long service leave after completion of ten (10) years continuous service plus an additional nine (9) calendar days for each subsequently completed year of service. 45 The NTA may, on application in writing by the Commissioner, approve a period of long service leave, subject to the Commissions operational requirements. 46 Subject to paragraph 47, the Commissioner is required to use his entitlement to long service leave within three (3) years of the ten (10) year and twenty (20) year entitlement accruing, unless the NTA approves a temporary deferral on the utilisation of the leave. 47 The Commissioner will not be required to use his entitlement where he was of an age no less than ten (10) years younger than the minimum retirement age of 55 years as at 7 March 1999, and he was then employed in the Northern Territory Public Sector and remained in that employment. 48 Where the Commissioner has not obtained approval from the NTA to temporarily defer the utilisation of his long service leave beyond the three (3) year limit under paragraph 46 he will: 48.1 be directed by the NTA to utilise the long service leave credit from a date which suits the needs of the Commission; or 48.2 have the long service leave credit cashed out from the date determined in sub-paragraph 48.1. 49 Long service leave will be granted in minimum blocks of seven (7) calendar days, and then multiples of three (3) calendar days. 50 When using a long service leave entitlement, the Commissioner may elect: 50.1 to be paid at the rate of the Total Remuneration Package for the full period of the leave; or
