Long Service Leave Worker Registration - Australian Capital Territory

Service summary

You will require this registration if you work within any of the building and construction, community, cleaning or security industries in the Australian Capital Territory. This scheme provides employees in these industries with long service leave entitlements that are portable between employers. The scheme ensures that workers that have been employed for 10 years within a regulated industry, and not all at the same employer, receive the same long service leave benefits entitled to single employer workers.

The scheme is funded by employers and contractors who provide contributions on behalf of their employees or contractors. Please use the contact details below to find out more information.
