Ryde Business Forum shares below for the information of its members and guests an update from the NSW Business Chamber.
Although the National Employment Standards (NES) provides for long service leave there is no national standard at present and the NES provisions basically operate to retain previous sources of entitlement to long service leave. For most workers (employees) in New South Wales this means the Long Service Leave Act 1955 (NSW). It is sometimes overlooked that under that Act non-permanent employees such as those employed as a seasonal worker or casual can have a long service leave entitlement.
