The webinar will explain what is meant by the term pro rata long service leave and will look at the relevant provisions in the NSW Long Service Leave Act 1955. Some guidelines of things to consider in determining whether an entitlement may be due will be provided. This information will assist employers in responding to claims by employees for pro rata long service leave.
