Long Service Award Calculation

Calculating your long service date

Calculating your long service or employment milestone date will include your regular, temporary and term work. Guidelines for this date are as follows:

  • All regular employees will receive a Long Service Award date that will include temporary/term work. 
  • The Long Service Award (LSA) date will be the first temporary/term start date in any jurisdiction held by the employee, unless there has been a break of 24 months or greater between temporary/term/ appointments with no earnings of any type. Then the LSA date will be the start date of the first of the temporary/term appointment held after such a break. 
  • An employee who retires and returns as a regular employee will maintain their original LSA date as long as there has not been a break of 24 months since retirement.
  • Long service milestones are celebrated after the calendar year in which they were achieved. For instance, if your long service date was achieved anywhere from January 1/23 to December 31/23, you would be honoured in 2024.
