Customer Question

Hello I'm just enquiring about long service leave. I've been working for the same company for 9 years 2 years ago they were sold to another company but we're still trading as the original company's name. I recently got let go and haven't received any money from them other than my holidays etc that I had accrued. Would I be wrong to think that I'm owed money for 9 years of service?

Hello
Regrettably, long service leave starts at 10 years of service.
As a result, they are not obliged to pay you.

I suggest perhaps they know this, and let you go as a result, fearing you would claim it in 12 months time.

So, yes, sadly you are wrong in thinking you are entitled to it.

I wish I could give better news.
