SA Long Service Leave Case

The SA Court of Appeal has held that a casual worker was entitled to long service leave after holding that the sporadic nature of his work was exempted when considering continuous service.

Justice Tim Stanley ruled harbour worker Desmond Woolford’s work of between 20 to 60 hours a fortnight was still continuous service as per the SA LSL Act 1987 because his absences were in accordance with the obligations of his casual contract.
