How the Scheme works

QLeave provides a long service leave scheme for workers in the contract cleaning industry in Queensland.

There is no cost to workers. All contract cleaning industry employers pay a levy based on the wages earned by their cleaners.

When workers have 10 years of service recorded, they are entitled to 8.67 weeks of long service leave paid by QLeave. Each year a statement of recorded service will be made available to workers online.

Entitlements are based on time spent in the industry rather than time spent with any individual employer.
