As the most valuable asset in an organisation, employees are often seen as the key to business success. 

Yet, with a significant portion of operating expenses attributed to payroll, there has never been a better time for businesses to explore ways to preserve staff while reducing costs. 

One way to reduce payroll costs whilst maintaining talent is for employees to take an extended period of leave without pay, which must be agreed upon by both parties.  

There are a variety of reasons for taking leave without pay, but whatever the reason, there are important statutory rules to be aware of.
