Long service leave

Hi,

 

I am in Qld and our employee would like to receive a portion of long service leave in each weeks pay. They have just had a bub. We don't mind helping out plus it helps reduce our liability. I have a couple of questions though.

 

1. If I pay 6 hours of LS each week I also pay extra super and LS accrues on this amount as well? Is that correct.

2. Do I need to get the staff member to sign any sort of agreement?

 

Thanks

Pam

Re: Long service leave

Hi @Pammac1

 

I’d be inclined to check with FairWork Australia around whether these long service leave payments will attract superannuation and additional long service leave, as they will be able to give you a better understanding of what does and does not attract those entitlements and contributions.

 

They would also be able to advise on whether or not you need to sign some sort of agreement, generally from a legal perspective. If you were still unsure it might be better to err on the side of caution with the agreement, just to avoid any potential issues further down the line

Regards,
Neil
