Re: SG on Unused Leave on Termination

Good Afternoon,

 

I know that SG is not paid on unused annual or long service leave on termination, BUT we have a senior Manager who insists he will be paid SG on these components when he resigns in a month. There is nothing in his contract concerning being paid it. Our payroll system by default won't calculate or pay it either. It would require a work-around.

So the question is "should we pay it"; is it against legislation, is it an organisations decision?

Kind Regards,

Warren Auld (Payroll Manager)

Note not OTE - no SG required.

 

There is no legisation that will force you to pay something you are not required to pay.

 

If the employment agreement doesn't say you need to pay it and the legislation doesn't say anything - no amount of whining by the employee would create the obligation (unless you agree to it).
