Many members may have heard about the new Victorian Long Service Leave Act, which will soon be coming into force. We’re happy to inform members that it has no bearing on the employment arrangements of our members who work in public health and for other employers covered by an enterprise agreement.
The Act is only a safety net for people who don’t have an entitlement under an award or an enterprise agreement. While we understand that some members are concerned about the potential to lose long service leave entitlements the Act will not impact on your Long Service Leave entitlement and it will continue as before under the public sector enterprise agreement without any changes. Don’t forget, the basic LSL entitlement in our health agreements is double that in the Act.
