    Default HR question! Re long service leave & mat leave!

    Good morning!

    Just a quick one:

    I've been employed 10 years with my employer this month. (Wooo, Go me!)

    EXCEPT, I had one year off on unpaid maternity leave.

    Does this count?
    Or am I really only up to 9 years now?

    Any HR gurus or people who have been in the same boat give me a shout out!

    In my workplace unpaid family leave doesn't count as service, sadly!

    Unfortunately it has to be 10 years of service so next year will be 10 years for you

    as far as I know, for most workplaces, maternity leave does not count towards your years of employment for accruing LSL.

    Yep you need to actually work or be on paid leave for the service to count.

    This. As we get a decent chunk paid leave it counts as continuity of service. Also our company will give you your LSL after 7yrs (pro Rata)

    Ours is paid leave - and if you take your paid maternity leave at half pay all the time counts as service time. Win!
