Long Service Leave Calculator

This Long Service Leave Calculator is specific to New South Wales. Long service leave entitlements vary from State to State and will depend upon specific provisions (if any) in any applicable modern award, enterprise agreement, or other industrial instrument.

The NSW calculator should not be used to calculate entitlements for any other State without first checking whether the long service leave entitlement is the same as that in NSW (that is, 2 months after 10 years’ service).

This calculator has been developed for use by New South Wales employers and employees. However, the calculator can also be used by employers and employees across Australia as a guide to an employee's entitlement to long service leave based upon the assumptions that each employee is entitled to two (2) months long service leave after ten (10) years of service, and thirteen (13) weeks leave after fifteen (15) years of service. An employee's long service leave entitlement may vary from State to State and be influenced by the applicable Federal or State Award, Certified Agreement or Enterprise Agreement for each employee. The calculator is not a comprehensive statement of the law or practice with regards to long service leave entitlements and as such cannot be totally relied upon.  If specific advice on the law regarding long service leave entitlements is required, it should be sought from a legal professional on a formal basis.
