Can an employee take long service and annual leave after ceasing employment?

Question: One of our employees retires on his last working day and will not be returning to work. However, he has requested not to be paid out his accrued long service leave (LSL) and annual leave, which will exclude superannuation contributions.

Instead, he wishes to take LSL from the next business day so that he is entitled to be paid superannuation, with annual leave payments to begin thereafter. Can we refuse his request?
