long service leave SA

Hi,

What is the difference between the 2 long service leave categories? "unused long service leave" and "Long service leave entitlement" The employee concerned hasnt been employed more than 7 years, I personally think unused is prior to entitlement ie like "accrued"

Re: long service leave SA

Hi @angiemac 

 

Thanks for your post. Unused entitlement payroll categories, such as Unused LSL and Unused Annual Leave, are only used when processing termination pays. They refer to entitlements that are being paid out not taken, leave hours taken during employment are 'used' by the employee while leave not taken is 'unused'.

 

This help article has detailed information on setting up a long service leave entitlement: Long service leave

This help article explains termination payroll categories: Create payroll categories for termination payments

 

Please let me know if you need further help.

Re: long service leave SA

Thankyou for your reply, that makes sense seeing it was part of a termination payment. The articles are good also, however, nothing showed up in entitlements and the employment was only 6 years and 9 months so I am thinking it was taken in error. I thought perhaps myob would automatically show entitlement at the time an employee becomes entitled and that if the termination is prior to the minimun 7 year employment, it would not be available to take.

Hi @angiemac 

 

As Long Service Leave rules are different for each state and for different industries, employers do need to set up, accrue and pay LSL as per the rules specific to their business. As such, it's not possible for the software to automatically determine an employees entitlement or when it should be paid. 

 

Please let me know if you need further help.
