Long Service Leave changes starting 1 November 2018

The Long Service Leave Act 2018 will come into effect on 1 November 2018 and supersede the 1992 Act.

These changes include:

• greater flexibility for women, families and people transitioning to retirement

• access to long service leave after seven years, not ten

• allowing employees to take long service leave in smaller increments (i.e. for any period of one day or more)

• most absences from work do not break continuous employment

• unpaid leave, including parental leave, counts towards long service leave

• increased penalties for employers who do not keep records or do not produce them when requested.
