PROVISIONS Current Employee benefits Recreation leave 810 834 Leave loading 92 94 Other employee benefits 4 6 Other current provisions Other provisions 172 187 1,078 1,122 Non-Current Employee benefits Recreation leave - - - - Total Provisions 1,078 1,122 The Agency employed 100 employees as at 30 June 2017 (94 employees as at 30 June 2016). Employee Benefits Provision is made for employee benefits accumulated as a result of employees rendering services up to the reporting date. These benefits include wages and salaries and recreation leave. Liabilities arising in respect of wages and salaries, recreation leave and other employee benefit liabilities that fall due within twelve months of reporting date are classified as current liabilities and are measured at amounts expected to be paid. Non-current employee benefit liabilities that fall due after twelve months of the reporting date are measured at present value, calculated using the Government long-term bond rate. No provision is made for sick leave, which is non-vesting, as the anticipated pattern of future sick leave to be taken is less than the entitlement accruing in each reporting period. Employee benefit expenses are recognised on a net basis in respect of the following categories: wages and salaries, non-monetary benefits, recreation leave, sick leave and other leave entitlements; and other types of employee benefits. As part of the financial management framework, the Central Holding Authority assumes the long service leave liabilities of Government agencies, including the Department of the Legislative Assembly and as such no long service leave liability is recognised in agency financial statements.
