Just wondering if anyone in Qld has successfully claimed pro rata long service leave for 'domestic' reasons and what those reasons were?
I've been directed to the qirc website to search through previous decisions to get an idea on what sort of things are approved/declined based on domestic reasons, but the site isn't working on my phone.
I'll have been there 8 years by the time I leave.

My SIL got hers paid out when she found a job much closer to home. She has 2 small children and saved over an hour each day in her commute. Not sure if that helps.

Have a look at this website: http://www.findlaw.com.au/articles/1...ice-leave.aspx
"The words 'domestic or other pressing necessity' have been interpreted to encompass a broad range of scenarios, including:
a pregnant employee leaving work to take on the responsibility of home duties;
an employee forced to leave work to take care of a sick spouse, or take care of children;
an employee changing jobs to lessen travel expenses when in a difficult financial situation;
an employee leaving a job because working night shifts had become a strain on the employee's family relationships and repeated requests for a transfer to the day shift had not been granted; and
an employee leaving employment because the employer was relocating and the employee would have been required to travel substantial distances to attend work each day."
Make sure you give your reason for leaving in your resignation letter and also write that you want to claim your pro-rated LSL. This is the legislation in NSW, not sure if it applies in QLD but it can't hurt.
