Is sick leave included as part of a redundancy payment?

Is sick leave included as part of a redundancy payment?

Unless a contract of employment or industrial instrument provides for it, employees do not have an entitlement to be paid for accrued but unused sick leave when their employment is terminated.

Payment for accrued but unused sick leave is definitely not part of any redundancy payment.
