Long service leave (LSL) is a period of paid leave awarded to an employee in recognition for long service to the employer and is based on continuous unbroken service.

LSL is a complex form of leave and knowing the source of this entitlement for their employees can trouble employers, especially if they have offices in multiple states. Generally speaking, employees are entitled to LSL in accordance with state or territory legislation. However, in some circumstances, entitlements to LSL which existed under certain agreements and pre-modern awards may be preserved under the National Employment Standards (NES).
