More than a quarter of Australia’s workers now have no leave entitlements. This recent shift -- revealed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics last month -- extends the long list of the ways employees are increasingly losing out.

More than 2,527,500 workers were found in August to have no holiday, long service or sick leave entitlements provided by their employer. This comprised 848,200 full-time workers and more than 1,679,300 casual and part-timers.
