Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with information to answer your question.
I will provide you with the relevant links so that you can take your time and calculate the information you require at your own leisure.
Annual leave can be calculated through the online calculator from the office of the Fair Work Ombudsman.
Because you work a nine-day fortnight I will assume that you are doing the hours for a ten-day fortnight in 9 days and therefore you are entitled to one day off a fortnight. In this case you would note in the calculator that you work Monday to Friday.
The calculator link is as follows:
Long service leave is dependent on when you commenced work as over the years the acts have changed. I provide you with the link from business Victoria which is a long service leave calculator where you can input your information and it will advise you of your entitlements.
Click on the orange box and the calculator will commence and you will complete the answers to the questions it asks.
Redundancy payments for Victorians have been governed by the federal government from when the former Kennett government gave up its rights to employment issues to the federal government.
As such you are covered by the new employment standards under the Fair Work Act.
the following link provides you with information of what the current standards are for redundancy in Australia.
There is no additional weight for being over a certain age unless the award that you are paid under contains these provisions.
In addition to these entitlements you are also entitled to notice from your employer on termination.
I hope this is of assistance. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
Having answered your question I would like to explain how I am paid for my work. The rating given by you, for my answer will decide whether or not I will be paid for my work.
At the end of this post you will see 5 faces asking you to rate my work. Selecting either of the 2 the unhappy faces means you are not happy with my answer and do not wish me to be paid for my work. The other 3 mean I am paid.
I would prefer you rate me at the very end of our session not after each response. This way I can be sure you have an answer that assists you and you can rate the whole experience.
If you want more information after I respond, or wish to have something cleared up, select "Reply so Sydney-Lawyer" or "Reply to Expert" and we can continue until you are satisfied.
I am here to assist you as quickly as possible, and you rating each post will delay the process as it does not tell me what the issue is. I would prefer you ask me questions than rating the response and not providing me with further questions.
