Requesting reconsideration of a decision

We make decisions on a variety of matters concerning employers, workers and levy payers under the Building and Construction Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Act 1991 and the Contract Cleaning Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Act 2005.

In most cases, you'll receive written advice outlining the decision we've made and what you can do if you're not satisfied.

Your options

If you're dissatisfied with a decision we've made there are two alternatives available:

  1. you may apply to QLeave for an independent senior officer to give further consideration to the matter (request for reconsideration) and if you are still dissatisfied you may then file an appeal with an Industrial Magistrate, OR
  2. you may appeal the original decision to an Industrial Magistrate and if you are still dissatisfied after a decision is made by an Industrial Magistrate, an appeal can then be made to the Industrial Court.

For more information on the options available to you, please open the Your Rights – reviews and appeals brochure.
