    Default Termination benefits

    We are a small company (NSW) and have to reduce staff. What are the rules regarding termination pay( number of weeks per year employed) and long service leave. Thanks

    Long Service Leave is per your Long Services Leave Act for the state, this is what I would look at for Vic. In relation to termination pay you will need to review the relevant award and the National Employment Standards. This should give you the information you need.

    Hope this helps

    Section 10 of the National Employment Standards deals with minimum notice periods and redundancy payments, although the redundancy provisions do not apply if you have fewer than 15 employees, including those being terminated.

    This should answer your questions about LSL

    Given that we are likely to see many references to the National Employment Standards, I have uploaded an official copy to this site.

    Providing you are logged in you can get the NES here

    Be careful here, the NES redundancy provision can be overridden by the historical redundancy provision in the superseded award (there are certain rules in place for this in the FWA). You need to do your homework.
