What's personal leave in an employment contract?

I have recently been offered a job, and the employment contract I have been provided with states that I am entitled to personal leave. I am not sure what this is, or what it entitles me to. I would like to know what rights and responsibilities I have regarding personal leave, and what the employer's expectations are of me with regards to this leave.

Personal leave sometimes replaces vacation and sick time. Some employers just give employees time off for whatever reason the employee chooses. To know more about the rights and responsibilities, you should speak to HR at your new employer who will help you with the employer's expectations and your rights under the leave provision in your contract. Also, look at your contract as it may provide insight as to how to implement the leave. When in doubt, speak to HR. Thanks.
