    Default Can someone tell me what happens to accrued Long Service Leave in redundancy?

    DH has worked in the same job (has transferred but his Long Service Leave was transferred with him) for just over 4 years. What happens to the accrued long service leave when he is made redundant? Does he get paid for it or does it just disappear? We're kind of freaking out because he has just received his paperwork Thanks in advance

    Even if he hasn't been there long enough to take the long service leave?

    Yeah, they except responsibility for it when you transfer it across from the precious employment.
    Well this is how it works in public health. If I transfer from one hospital to the other I have to give the new hospital a transcript of what leave I have accrued.
    They choose to take me on knowing I have that much leave or they negotiate the amount they are happy to take responsibility for.

    I think it's different in each company, but I know where I have worked, you can take the leave at 10 years, but be paid out after 7 if you quit or are made redundant

    Which state are you in? It differs from state to state.

    In VIC a pro rated amount is usually paid out after 7 years even though you are not entitled to take it until you have 10 years service.

    It differs from state to state, but most states I think the pro rata time is 7 years - so you can't take lsl at 7 years, but if you leave the company for whatever reason at or after 7 years LSL is paid out at the pro rata amount.

    Sorry, but I wouldn't imagine after 4 years with the company that LSL would be paid out. (Unless he has some sort of enterprise agreement that has better conditions that just the standard state legislation).

    As PP's said, it can differ state to state. Here in WA you will be paid a pro-rata amount if you leave after you've been with the company for 7 years. You can take long service leave at the full rate if you've been there for 10 years. If you leave before 7 years, you get nothing.

    It's 5 years in NSW and 7 years in every other state (although I fancy I'm missing one that's different). Sadly your DH's LSL will disappear unless you live in NSW AND he ticks over his anniversary date or he happens to be in and industry that has portable LSL but I doubt it from what you're asking!
