                            (iii)  a period during which the employee is absent from work because of a personal illness, or a personal injury, for which the employee is receiving compensation under a law of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory that is about workers’ compensation or under an industrial instrument; or

                            (iv)  a period of leave or absence of a kind prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this paragraph;

                     (c)  if the employee ceases to be an eligible employee for a continuous period (a break period) of 8 years or more—any period before the break period during which the employee was an eligible employee;

                     (d)  any period during which a waiver agreement is in effect between the employee and an employer;

                     (e)  any other period of a kind prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this paragraph.

             (3)  For the purposes of subsection (2), if a casual employee is an eligible employee at any time during a week, the employee is taken to have been an eligible employee for the whole week.

Effect of break period once entitled to long service leave

             (4)  If:

                     (a)  an employee ceases to be an eligible employee for a continuous period of 8 years or more; and

                     (b)  at the time of so ceasing, the employee is entitled to long service leave under subsection (1) in respect of a period, or periods, of qualifying service (the employee’s previous qualifying service); and

                     (c)  the employee becomes an eligible employee again;

paragraph (2)(c) does not apply in respect of the employee’s previous qualifying service.

39AA  Amount of long service leave

             (1)  The number of hours of long service leave that an eligible employee is entitled to for a week of qualifying service completed by the employee is worked out using the formula in subsection (2).

             (2)  The formula is:

                  

where:

working hours means:

                     (a)  if the employee is a full‑time employee at all times during the week—35 hours; or

                     (b)  if the employee is a part‑time employee at any time during the week—the lesser of the following amounts (or either of them if they are equal):

                              (i)  the total number of ordinary hours of work of the employee as a part‑time employee for the week;

                             (ii)  35 hours; or

                     (c)  if the employee is a casual employee at any time during the week and paragraph (b) does not apply—the lesser of the following amounts (or either of them if they are equal):

                              (i)  the total number of hours worked by the employee as a casual employee during the week;

                             (ii)  35 hours.

                     (b)  does not exceed the employee’s LSL credit at the time the leave is to be taken.

Note:          An employee is taken not to be on long service leave on public holidays and during certain other periods of absence (see section 39AE).

             (3)  As soon as practicable, but no later than 14 days after the application is made, the employer must give the employee a written response:

                     (a)  stating whether or not the employer grants the long service leave; and

                     (b)  if the employer refuses to grant the long service leave—giving details of the reasons for the refusal.

             (4)  The employer may refuse to grant long service leave only on reasonable business grounds.

Civil penalty:          60 penalty units.

Meaning of LSL credit

             (5)  For the purposes of this section, the long service leave credit (LSL credit) of an eligible employee on a day (the calculation day) is the number of hours worked out as follows:

                     (a)  first, add together the number of hours of long service leave that the employee is entitled to under section 39AA for each week of qualifying service completed by the employee before the calculation day;

                     (b)  then, subtract the number of hours of long service leave (if any) previously granted to the employee under this section.

Note 1:       The number of hours of long service leave that an employee is entitled to in respect of certain qualifying service may be affected by section 39CE.

Note 2:       Division 4 of this Part provides other remedies for contraventions of civil penalty provisions.

Civil penalty:          60 penalty units.

             (3)  In this section:

                     (a)  a reference to the base rate of pay payable to an employee is a reference to the employee’s base rate of pay before any amounts are deducted under a salary sacrifice arrangement; and

                     (a)  at the same time as the employer would have paid the employee during the period if the employee had not taken the leave; or

                     (b)  if the employee requests to be paid in advance for the whole period and an industrial instrument that covers the employee expressly allows the employee to be paid in advance for long service leave—in accordance with the employee’s request.

Civil penalty:          60 penalty units.

Note:          Division 4 of this Part provides other remedies for contraventions of civil penalty provisions.

39AE  Public holidays etc. not to count as long service leave

             (1)  If the period during which an eligible employee takes long service leave includes a day or part‑day that is a public holiday in the place where the employee is based for work purposes:

39BB  Termination of waiver agreements

             (1)  If a waiver agreement is in effect between an employee and an employer, the employee and employer may agree to terminate the agreement.

39BC  Approval of waiver agreements and variations by the Corporation

             (1)  Within 30 days after a waiver agreement, or a varied waiver agreement, is lodged with the Corporation, the Board must:

                     (a)  decide to approve or refuse to approve the agreement or variation; and

                     (b)  give the parties to the agreement or varied agreement written notice of the decision.

             (2)  If the Board does not make a decision within the 30 day period mentioned in subsection (1), the Board is taken to have approved the waiver agreement or variation (as the case may be).

             (3)  The Board may only decide to approve a waiver agreement or variation if the Board is satisfied that:

                     (a)  the employee to whom the agreement or variation relates is an eligible employee of a kind mentioned in subsection 39B(1); and

                     (b)  there are no reasonable grounds for believing that the agreement or variation has not been genuinely agreed to by the parties; and

                     (c)  the terms of the agreement, or varied agreement:

                              (i)  do not contravene subsection 39B(2); and

             (6)  If the Board refuses to approve a variation of a waiver agreement, the variation ceases to have effect on the day the parties to the variation are notified of the refusal under paragraph (1)(b).

39BD  Effect of waiver agreements on payroll levy

                   For any period during which a waiver agreement is in effect between an eligible employee and an employer, the employee is taken not to be an eligible employee for the purposes of sections 4 and 6 of the Payroll Levy Act.

Note:          This means that an employer of an eligible employee is not required to pay payroll levy in respect of eligible wages paid to the employee while the waiver agreement is in effect. However, returns made by the employer under section 5 of the Payroll Levy Collection Act while the waiver agreement is in effect will still need to include information in relation to the employee.

39BE  Employer must comply with waiver agreement

                   If a waiver agreement is in effect between an employee and an employer, the employer must pay the additional remuneration or make the additional contributions or both pay the additional remuneration and make the additional contributions (as the case may be) in accordance with the terms of the agreement.

Civil penalty:          60 penalty units.

             (2)  All money received by the Corporation other than payments made by employers in respect of payroll levy is to be paid into, and is taken to be part of, the Fund.

             (4)  The Corporation may create separate notional accounts within the Fund to reflect payroll levy paid by employers before 1 January 2012 and such levy paid on or after 1 January 2012.

41  Application of the Fund

             (4)  Any plan for the investment of the Fund must:

                     (a)  conform with any principles or guidelines referred to in subsection (1); and

                     (b)  subject to those principles or guidelines, be directed towards maximising the return on the money invested consistently with prudent financial management practices.

             (5)  As soon as practicable after the Board has prepared, or revised, a plan for the investment of the Fund the Board must send a copy of the plan, or of the revised plan, to the Minister.

43  Sufficiency of the Fund

             (1)  The Board must seek advice from an actuary as to:

                     (a)  whether the rate of payroll levy imposed (at the time the advice is given) would be adequate to ensure that the Fund will be sufficient to reimburse employers in accordance with the Employer Reimbursement Rules; and

                     (b)  if not, the rate that would be so adequate.

             (2)  The Board must seek such advice at least once every 3 years.

             (5)  When the Board obtains advice from an actuary, the Board must notify the Minister of the terms of the advice and make a recommendation to the Minister as to whether the rate of payroll levy needs to be changed and, if so, the rate that should be imposed.

             (6)  If the Board forms the opinion, having regard to any advice obtained by it under this section, that the Fund is likely within the ensuing 12 months to be sufficient to reimburse employers in accordance with the Employer Reimbursement Rules, the Board must give to the Minister a written report stating that it has formed that opinion and setting out the reasons for that opinion.

             (7)  If at any time the Board considers that the amount standing to the credit of the Fund exceeds the amount required to be retained in the Fund to make any payments that will need to be made out of the Fund, the Board may distribute the excess among such persons who have paid payroll levy, and in such amounts, as the Board considers equitable.

Part 7Payments out of the Fund

  

44  Reimbursement for payments relating to long service leave

                     (c)  the creation of a notional account for each person who is or was an eligible employee representing his or her share of payments into the Fund on or after 1 January 2012, whether or not the relevant employer actually receives any of that share.

             (2)  Rules relating to amounts mentioned in paragraph (1)(a) or (b) may be different on the basis of:

                     (a)  employment as an eligible employee before 1 January 2012; and

             (2)  If the Board verifies that the employer is insolvent, is being wound up or has ceased to exist, the Corporation must pay the employee in respect of the employee’s untaken long service leave the amount that would have been payable by the employer under Part 5A had the employee taken the period of long service leave immediately before the relevant circumstance.

             (3)  The payment is payable to the employee out of the Fund.

             (4)  A payment by the Corporation under this section:

                     (a)  discharges the liability of the employer to make the payment; and
