Does paid study leave attract superannuation?
Yes, paid study leave will attract superannuation. The relevant ATO Superannuation Guarantee Ruling (2009/2) states that salary or wages that an employee receives, at or below their normal rate of pay for ordinary hours of work, in respect of periods of paid leave is simply a continuation of their ordinary time pay.
