You can find everything you need to know about a long leave on the Business Victoria website. These include the Long Service Leave Calculator and a comprehensive guide to legislative changes. They are asked to fill in the data on employment and leave already taken, and an answer is given in a few seconds. All forms of paid leave are charged to the duration of continuous employment for LSL imputation. For example: annual leave, care leave and long-term leave. The right to parental leave for a worker who is a second caregiver at the time of the child`s birth or adoption has been increased from 2 weeks to 4 weeks of paid leave. In addition, an additional 12 weeks of paid leave is available for a secondary babysitter who becomes the primary caregiver of the child within the first 78 weeks (18 months) after the birth or adoption. In addition, there is now more flexibility in the use of leave, as the current requirement to take parental leave in a single uninterrupted period is being changed to allow parents to use their leave to share care in a way that suits them, subject to company requirements. Workers are also entitled to paid breastfeeding breaks upon return to work. The LSL is calculated as the total number of weeks of employment divided by 60 and multiplied by the normal weekly rate of pay at the time of taking the leave or when the worker has terminated his or her employment relationship. See also our examples of the length of the length of the duty leave.

The right to parental leave for a worker who is a primary guardian at the time of the child`s birth or adoption has been increased from 14 weeks to 16 weeks of paid leave. Our clients have previously considered the unfortunate uncertainty as to whether it is the power to achieve a result of multiple sanctions by the clause or whether the sanctions apply disjunctively, meaning that only one can be applied. In some cases, an employer may consider it appropriate to apply more than one sanction to appropriately address proven misconduct without having to resort to termination of the employment relationship. For obvious reasons, it is preferable, in such cases, to make it clear that this approach is compatible with the company agreement. The parties to the agreement have committed to implementing changes in the way the Victorian government works and provides services by agreeing on the principles of “labour mobility”. The principles recognise that the services required by the Community of a modern public service are not static; They change all the time. Clause 15 contains a statement of intent that the VPS Agreement as a whole is to be interpreted in accordance with the mobility principles and an explicit obligation for the parties to work towards the operationalisation of the mobility principles during the term of the agreement. . . .
