Home - Can long service leave be taken on a pro rata basis?
October 17, 2019 on chapter Long service leave

An employee who has worked part time for us for just over 7 years has asked to take some long service leave. Is she entitled to take pro rata long service leave now?

Your question depends on the source of the long service leave entitlement, which can be under state legislation or an award or enterprise agreement. Assuming the Long Service Leave Act 1958 (WA) is the correct source of entitlement for your employee, that employee is not entitled to take long service leave until they have been continuously employed for 10 years (the pro rata entitlement after 7 years only arises on termination of employment).
