Under the Long Service Leave Act 1987 (SA) an employee is entitled, after ten years continuous service, to long service leave on full pay amounting to thirteen weeks.

A further 1.3 weeks is granted for each completed year after 10 years of service.

An employee who leaves his or her employment at any time after seven years continuous service is, in most circumstances, entitled to receive proportional payment of long service leave but employees dismissed without notice for serious misconduct may lose their pro-rata long service leave entitlements.
