Long Service Leave

Long service leave is intended to provide a career break after a long period of your working life; a rest for your body and mind. 

But with today's much less secure work environment, only one in four Australian workers ever qualifies to receive their long service leave. Temporary contracts, businesses changing owners, and outsourcing all contribute to workers' inability to access accrued long service leave.

In some industries, business transfers are so common that you might do the same job for 10 years, but lose your entitlements every 3 years as the business changes hands. 


We need to improve long service leave arrangements so that workers don't lose their leave entitlements. Human beings aren't built to work endlessly without a break! Sign the petition.
