Portable long service leave for Queensland's community services industry
The Queensland Government has passed legislation to establish a new portable long service leave scheme available for community services workers.
The scheme seeks to reward workers for service to the industry by ensuring they receive long service leave benefits, even if they change employers.
Under the scheme, employers in the community services industry will be required to register their business or organisation with QLeave.
The Scheme will commence on 1 January 2021.
QLeave is the statutory authority administering existing portable long service leave schemes in Queensland and will be the authority for the community services industry portable long service leave scheme.
