February 2018 Question of the Month – Accruing leave on NIL fortnightly pay

An employee has taken long service leave through the Construction Industry Portable Long Service Leave Scheme. This has been paid out by the portable long service leave fund.

A NIL fortnightly pay for this employee is being recorded to keep a record of this in the payroll system. Does this employee still accrue leave and sick entitlements during this period?

Yes, they do accrue. They are still entitled to accrual whilst on leave, regardless of who is paying the LSL.
