  • Results should be verified by an independent party (e.g. payroll office, union or legal advisor).
  • If covered by a Federal award, collective or individual agreement, or other legislation that contain long service leave provisions, this Act may not apply. Check with the Fair Work Ombudsman prior to using this calculator by calling 13 13 94.
