    Default Long Service Leave Changes Victoria

    Did you know the long service leave act has changed? You can now take individual days! And I think you’re entitled to take leave after 7 years.

    Here’s a summary
    https://www.hlb.com.au/long-services...s-in-victoria/

    If someone hasn’t told me I would never have known. My company just updated the policy and didn’t say anything 🤷‍♀️.

    I’m changing my annual leave booked for next year to LSL, as a shift worker annual leave is paid out at shift rates but LSL is base rate. So I will keep my LasL as low as practical

    Default Long Service Leave Changes

    Yeah unfortunately only Victoria at the moment

    Wise enough, you get paid your annual leave with shift penalties?!? We don’t here, I get a basic 17.5% leave loading instead, so I actually lose money taking leave as it doesn’t cover the Sunday rates I lose (and rely on!). Same if I was to call in sick, we lose any shift penalties just basic rate, I’m massively short in my fortnightly pay if I’m sick on my Sunday, hence most of us don’t dare call in sick on weekends as we pay for it.

    Oh that’s so harsh! Yes annual leave is paid st shift rates, so my wage doesn’t change when I take leave. If I take LSL while I’m a shift worker my pay doesn’t change either, it’s full shift rates. But if I get sacked any annual leave accrued on shift work is payed out at shift rates but LSLis base rate.

    That’s a smart idea to take your leave as long service then!
