What entitlements are paid to employees on termination of employment?

Entitlements that are paid out on termination include:

  • accrued and pro rata (unused) annual leave
  • annual leave loading
  • accrued and pro rata long service leave (if applicable in accordance with provisions of the Long Service Leave Act 1955)
  • unused rostered days off (RDOs) and accrued time/overtime (if applicable)
  • payment in lieu of notice (if applicable)

No payment is due for public holidays over the Christmas closure period if the employee has terminated their employment prior to the closedown. Personal leave is not normally paid out on termination of employment.
