Change or reverse a leave booking

You can change or reverse a leave booking for the current or a future pay period in Novopay Online, as long as you do this before the Wednesday cut-off for online instructions. See Cut-off times for pay instructions.

If you want to reverse leave that has occurred in a past pay period or you have missed the Wednesday cut-off for online instructions, send a NOVO12r form to the Education Payroll Service Centre to reverse the leave booking.

To change leave dates or the leave type code, you must reverse the whole booking as it was entered, then book the leave with the correct information.

Note: If sick leave is changed to ACC leave, you must also submit the required documents. See Accidents and ACC leave.
