My job role has been made redundant but the company says I have to stay till a certain date to get that redundancy.
Can I take my long service leave to take me through to that date and start a new full time job whilst on long service.
I am in QLD.

Only with the approval of your employer.

Doing so without their approval can mean abandonment of your employment and loss of entitlements if the employer feels like being narky to you or wants to save a few dollars.
