Clause 14: Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendment 53.24. This amendment seeks to do what we did in the last bill. Amendment agreed to. Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendment 53.25. Prior service with the same employer is to be included in an employee's total qualifying service for long service leave accrual purposes. Therefore, employers will need to keep records of the periods of an employee's prior service with that employer, hence this amendment. Amendment agreed to. Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendment 53.26. Only those absences of 2 months or more affect the employee's rate of accrual of long service leave. Thus employers need only record absences of 2 months or more. Amendment agreed to.
