    Oh ombudsmen can only tell you the law they can't enforce it. I asked them what do I do now and she said try talking to someone else in HR.

    Anyone know what I do now? Thanks for your advice
    Did the ombudsmen give you anything in writing? I've spoken to the TIO before and they sent me an email with what the law says I should do/be entitled to, and if it wasn't resolved in x amount of time then further action can be taken. But I'm not sure if its different depending on what area you're calling in regards to?
    At least if you have their advice you have something to show your employer and it might get them moving!

    I really hope this is sorted soon for you how bloody stressful!

    Fair work don't deal with Lsl in Queensland it's a state legislation. Yes the ombudsmen gave me the act that this falls into I email it to HR. They said this does not apply because you are on maternity leave this HR lady is so rude.

    My husband is doing some research now. Thanks ladies

    Sorry didn't see you were in QLD. Maybe they do have you on a technicality, you should have taken the LSL straight after the AL as they don't have to payout the LSL however you are entitled to take it.. Does that make sense?

    Omg cases like this make me so angry, you're so clearly entitled to it!!!! HR people like yours tarnish our high quality profession.

    My suggestion would be to contact someone in higher management, in writing, maybe a general manager or area manager, let them know you're going to lodge a complaint with the Fair Work Commission unless it is resolved and the money arrives in your account by X date. Be reasonable, I'd say 21 days is reasonable time for them to investigate, get legal advice if necessary, and make payment to you.

    If they fail to do this, submit a complaint to the Fair Work Commission.

    As a pp mentioned, this might make things difficult when you return however I would question whether you would want to return after they've treated you like this anyway.

    All the best, please don't let this unethical company get their way when you're so clearly in the right.

    I found the Industrial Relations Commission in Qld to be really helpful when I was working out what I was entitled to with my LSL. I'd suggest giving them a call tomorrow. I kept getting their voicemail service, but they called me back within a day, explained everything clearly, and sent me the forms to lodge an appeal if my claim was denied (luckily for me it wasn't). You poor thing, this must be stressful! Hope you can get this resolved quickly.

    Join your Union tomorrow. Get them to fight it for you - they will have industrial lawyers who know this back to front.

    Not likely. Maybe if the OP had joined the union before she had this issue. Generally, a Union will not help you immediately if you join only when things go bad at work.

    There's no waiting period for help when joining a union and it will be a current and ongoing issue for the op if she joins. If she joins she is entitled to help. Many people only join when they 'need' a union. My DH recently joined a new union and they were assisting even before he signed the membership forms.
    OP phone your union (probably United voice or awu) and see what they can offer you

    Very likely they will help. Most of the Industrial issues that come across my desk are issues that the Union have taken up for people who have just joined as a result of a workplace dispute! Heck, the Union I deal with will even represent non members just to have a fight! 😊
