Have you recently been dismissed from your employment after providing 5 years or more of service? Have you been with your current employer for more than 5 years?
You may have certain entitlements to long service leave payments.
There is a common misconception that Long Service Leave entitlements only become payable if you have been with one employer for 10 years or more. This is not the case. There are certain scenarios which give rise to Long Service Leave entitlements being payable if you have been with an employer for 5 years or more.
Long Service Leave entitlements can also arise if you’ve been with more than 1 employer. For example, if your employer was to sell their business to a different company and you continued in your position for the subsequent owner without a break in your employment, usually any time worked with your previous employer would be count for the purpose of your Long Service Leave entitlements with the subsequent employer.
