    There are a couple of tempting squares there Jason in particular the orange floral and the navy printed very slick.

    Not true, it used to be this way when the trial first started (ie the terms below said "No Couries") but now the terms are this:

    http://auspost.com.au/personal/how-does-it-work.html

    You can't send the following to a Parcel Locker:
    letters and standard mail
    Express Post letters
    parcels requiring 'proof of identity' or payment on delivery
    parcels containing wine or other alcohol
    parcels larger than our biggest locker, which is 415mm x 645mm x 600mm

    Ie they will now sign for any courier parcels. Just not those requiring proof of identity or CoD (personally I have never had one of these they are all just sign on delivery). So DHL etc work fine...

    What can be delivered to a Parcel Locker?
    [COLOR=FF00AA]Parcel Lockers are for parcels delivered by Australia Post. [/COLOR]

    Also, we don't recommend the service for parcels containing perishable items.

    That is EXACTLY the way I think about sick leave.

    I tell people my collegues that I'm taking a sick day to play golf and when they give me a bit of a stare I explain that my employer has anticipated/accounted for me being away 10 days a year sick.

    If I happen to be a healthy person who doesn't need to take time off work when I am ill, why the hell should I be punished for it?

    At my last place they stopped calling them sick days and bundled all non annual leave days together into something called "personal leave"

    Nevertheless, they are accepting courier deliveries.

    I'm going off my own experience and those of people in this WP thread: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1890741

    You've made me a bit nervous though and I think I might endeavour to find out what the official policy is next time I go down. It would be a shame to have something return to sender (although I doubt that would ever happen - I'm sure it would just sit in the courier's warehouse and they'd ask for an alternate delivery address).

    Going forward to when it becomes a paid-for service, I think Aus Post just has to accept signature on delivery courier items if they want these lockers to be a success. So many retailers and customers use courier companies. The lockers are useless without that service.

    With my current employer I get all my unused sick leave paid out when I leave. It doesnt stop me going to the beach in the spring, but I do show some restraint which I never used to.

    Is this policy stated on your employment contract ?

    This has got to be an individual contract clause, right? Not once in my life have I ever seen any employer payout on sick leave.

    After three days appears to be the current rule, but then it depends if the employer is government or private.

    After three days is the case at my current place of work.
