Portable long service leave for Queensland's community services industry

The Queensland Government has introduced legislation to establish a new portable long service leave scheme available for community services workers. If passed by Parliament, the scheme is proposed to start on 1 July 2020.

The scheme seeks to reward workers for service to the industry by ensuring they receive long service leave benefits, even if they change employers.

Subject to passage of the Community Services (Portable Long Service Leave) Bill 2019 employers in the community services industry must register with QLeave from 1 July 2020.

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.
