We’ve finished all the long service leave calculators for all Australian states and territories.
The way to calculate long service leave balances is slightly different for each Australian state and territory, so we built a specific calculator depending on where you work.
Now all Australians can see their current long service leave balance, check future balances, and make long service leave bookings.
If you’re a Bindle admin in Australia, and you currently use Bindle to track leave balances, turn on the long service leave balances for all your employees by entering their employment start date on their personal details page.
Exactly what we do in each instance is going to be the subject of a dedicated web page explaining each of the formulas we use.
Once again, it’s important to note that these balances only apply to taking time off, and do not apply to calculating the pay out on termination. They use a different calculation for that!
There are a few caveats to note with the current implementation. Things like:
The website of the Australian Fair Work Ombudsman goes into more detail about all of these.
At any rate, please let us know if you would like to see changes to the current implementation and we’d be happy to oblige.
