NAB statement on paid leave for emergency service volunteers
We recognise the critical contribution members of volunteer organisations make to our community.
At NAB, we have a longstanding policy to provide our emergency service volunteers as much paid crisis leave as they require during emergencies, like the current bushfires.
Crisis leave will be granted to employees who, as a member of a volunteer organisation such as the SES, CFA, RFS, are called to assist the local community during a declared emergency, or in other exceptional circumstances affecting the community.
We are here to support all NAB customers, employees and the wider community and we urge anyone who needs assistance or advice to contact us so we can discuss their circumstances and work out the best way to help.
- The policy of indefinite paid leave for volunteers helping during emergencies has been in place for more than three years.
- In November, we enacted a disaster relief package for customers affected by the bushfires in NSW and QLD. More details can be found here: https://news.nab.com.au/news_room_posts/nab-announces-nsw-bushfire-relief-package/
