For service after 1 January 2012, an employee’s qualifying service and LSL credits will be based on the monthly returns the employer submits to the LSL Corporation.
For service between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2011 the LSL Corporation calculates the balance of an employee’s aggregate qualifying service (if any) and their accrued LSL credits, taking into account any leave that they have already been paid for.
If an employee had continuous service before 1 January 2000, and before 1 January 2010 was covered by a black coal mining industry award, the LSL Corporation will calculate the amount of continuous service and LSL credits (if any) that the employee can still have counted.
The LSL Corporation provides current and former workers with details of their qualifying service and LSL credits. If the person thinks the information is incorrect or incomplete they must provide evidence to the LSL Corporation.
Employers should keep records of employment for the period up to 1 January 2012 to help the LSL Corporation verify its qualifying service information.
