Casual Worker Entitled To Long Service Leave

There is a common misconception that casual employees are not entitled to long service leave.  Casual employees can be long-serving and have continuous employment, even though they may not work every week.

This was confirmed by a recent case heard in the Industrial Magistrate’s Court of Western where the court ruled that an employee who was casually employed by Atlantic Healthcare Services for 13 years,  was entitled to long service leave.

The employer was directed to pay the employee almost $10,000 of unpaid long service leave under the WA Long Service Leave Act 1958, which applies to all WA based employers regardless of if in the WA state or national industrial relations system.

It’s important to note that the case for each employee may be different and should be individually examined to determine if they qualify for long service leave.
