Coal LSL safeguards portable long service leave benefits for eligible employees in this country’s second largest export industry.
On March 24, Coal LSL CEO Darlene Perks and General Manager Legal Peter Kembrey appeared before the Senate Education and Employment Legislation Committee at the Additional Budget Senate Estimates hearings at Parliament House.
It was the fourth time Coal LSL had appeared before the committee to talk about how portable long service leave in Australia’s coal mining industry works, how long service leave is accrued, when it can be accessed by employees, how the levy paid by employers is calculated and how the money flows within the Fund.
