Customer Question

I am an Interstate Truck Driver.
I have been with my current Employer for 20 years.
I have also had 4 weeks AL this year.
I have recently been put on 5 weeks LSL because business has been quiet.
I want to know if this is legal or not and where I stand. Can they force me to take any more LSL ?
Thank you,

Good Morning,

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

Your employer can request you take your LSL as it is a debt to the company.

They can ask you to take all your LSL if they want.

You cannot refuse to take it. It is the same as annual leave once it has accrued the employer can request you take it.

I am sorry I cannot give you anything more positive.
