Recognition of Prior Service for Long Service Leave Entitlements Ė DOCEP Circular No. 7 of 2004
The Department of Consumer and Employment Protection (DOCEP) has issued a Circular outlining new policy on the recognition of prior service for the purposes of calculating long service leave entitlements for public sector employees. The Circular is attached.
The Circular extends the recognition of prior service with the Australian Government, Territories, and other States in the calculation of long service leave entitlements to all public sector employees. The Circular also provides that prior service with the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) is now to be recognised in the calculation of long service leave entitlements.
Health Services should note that prior service with Commonwealth and State Governments is already recognised for the purposes of calculating long service leave entitlements for all employee groups in the health system. However, recognition of prior service with the ADF is a new benefit, which will need to be applied to all employees.
The Circular sets out in detail how long service leave entitlements are to be calculated where an employee has prior service with the Australian Government, Territories, other States and the ADF. Health Services should ensure that prior service in these organisations is recognised in line with the terms of the Circular.
Any queries regarding this circular can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
