QLeave - Long service leave in the building, construction and cleaning industries in Queensland
Portable long service leave is available to building and construction industry employees (apprentices, trainees, casuals and full-time workers) and contract cleaning industry employees. This enables employees to work for multiple employers and gain their long service leave benefit from the Portable Long Service Leave Scheme. However, if an employee in either of these industries works for the same employer continuously for 10 years the employer has an obligation to pay any long service leave entitlement and should contact QLeave regarding reimbursement.
For information regarding the scheme or individual service credit balances, visit QLeave – Portable Long Service Leave Authority.
