Building and construction industry
During the last 40 years, all Australian states and territories have passed legislation to provide building and construction workers with access to portable long service leave, regardless of whether they work on different projects for one or more employers.
A National Reciprocal Agreement has been entered into by every state and territory-based scheme to also enable interstate construction work to count towards a worker's long service leave. Whilst the time accrued under one scheme cannot be transferred to another scheme, the time in each scheme is counted when a claim for long service leave is made.
For information on the interstate schemes, refer to the links listed below or go to the Ausleave website.

Contract cleaning industry
Our scheme allows workers to accrue long service leave benefits for eligible contract cleaning work performed in Queensland regardless of the number of employers worked for.
Similar schemes currently operate in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. Service accrued interstate may contribute to a worker's overall benefit.
