Record Keeping Requirements – Long Service Leave Act 1955
On 20 May 2022, a new section 8 of the Long Service Leave Act and an amendment to the Long Service Leave Regulation 2021 came into effect. The new provisions deal with the way in which an employer must keep long service leave records for their employees and are broadly similar to the previous record keeping obligations.
The information required to be kept by an employer includes:
The name and ABN of the employer
The employment status and classification of the worker
The worker’s entitlement to long service leave and any leave taken by the worker.
The long service leave records must be kept by the employer for a period of at least 6 years after the day on which the worker’s employment is terminated.
The Long Service Leave Act 1955 has been amended to allow employers and workers to agree to workers taking leave in separate periods no less than a day. The amendment also allows for leave to be taken with less than one months notice by agreement. We are amending our FAQs and other areas of the website to provide more detail.
