Wage Verification

Employers may be required to verify the rate of pay for a worker’s Long Service Leave claim via the Wage Verification feature in our Employer Portal.

Many workers who claim Long Service Leave online will be offered a ‘calculated rate of pay’ for their claim. This rate of pay is automatically populated using data from their employer’s quarterly Returns submitted throughout the year.

If a worker chooses not to accept the calculated rate for their claim (or was not eligible to be offered it), their employer will be prompted to verify the worker’s wage using the Wage Verification feature in the Employer Portal.

Employers will be notified by email when a Wage Verification request is pending for one of their workers’ claims.

In the Wage Verification tab in the Employer Portal, select the worker from the list whose wage you need to verify. You will be asked to provide their ordinary weekly hours (minus RDO deduction), ordinary hourly rate, and any applicable allowances.

Once you’re happy with the information you have input, hit the submit button and your wage verification will be sent to LeavePlus automatically. The employer Wage Verification process gives employers the ability to quickly progress the claiming process for their workers.
