    On October 1, 2015 I will have reached 10 years of continous full-time employment. I would like to resign on September 15, 2015 and give one months notice - meaning I will finish on October 15, 2015. Assuming my employer accepts the October 15 finish date, I would like to know if there is any reason I would not be entitled to the full long service leave payout. Specifically, will resigning before I reach 10 years (September 15) jeopordise my entitlements, even though my last day would be after 10 years (October 15)?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    You need to be clear on what date you are resigning.

    Your post says:
    You need to say you are 'giving one month notice to resign on 15th Oct 2015'

    Do not give any wriggle room to the employer to say you resigned on 15 Sept..

    As Rod said, so long as your final day at work is clear on your resignation letter then you shouldn't have any issue claiming your long service leave.
