NEW Long Service Leave Act

Long Service Leave Act 2018 As of November 1st 2018, the new Long Service Leave Act has been implemented and impacts all employers and employees across Victoria. Some key changes are as follows:

  • Employees can apply for leave after seven years of work, rather than ten years

  • Employees can take long service leave in smaller increments (i.e. a minimum of one day per occasion)

  • Absences from work including unpaid parental leave will generally not break continuous employment

  • Certain breaks will now count towards accrual of long service leave (e.g. unpaid parental leave of up to 52 weeks, or longer in certain circumstances).
