But yes, from all accounts you should be entitled to it!
Everything that LMS said!
Sorry I had misread, your 22 weeks was paid leave?!?! That's huge!
When I log onto my personal details thing at work they have my continuous service from the date I started with them as a casual not permanent, so it definitely does not align with when I'm entitled to LSL.
I'm in HR and pregnant and checked this myself yesterday. All your leave counts as service 'as long as you are being paid at full pay'. So if for example, you get leave at half pay, your service is counted for only half that period. Service is how long service leave is counted.
The other thing you need to check is if you had any other form of unpaid leave in that10 years. Some companies recognise the anniversary of service, hence why you got the voucher etc but for LSL requirements you might still have a time to go. I've been with my company 4.5 years and will make 5y service in March but I had another baby plus went in unpaid leave for a holiday so my LSL 'service' is less.

Fair work is definitely not answering calls today. But with what you guys are saying I think they got it wrong.
