Hi,
The short answer is Yes, you will still be entitled.. termination does not remove your entitlement to be paid LSL.
Please advise the basis of your eligibility for LSL.. in particular, how long have you worked for the employer?
Please read the following fact sheet issued by the Dept. of the Attorney-General for info on LSL generally.

I await your response, kind regards, James
