Long Service Leave Employer Registration - Australian Capital Territory


You will need this registration if you provide, or intend to provide, employment to workers within the building and construction, community sector, cleaning or security industries. 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 the regulated industry, and not all at the same employer, receive the same long service leave benefits entitled to single employer workers. As a registered employer your obligations will include:

  • notifying the regulator when a worker starts or finishes working for you
  • paying a levy of the ordinary wages of your workers
  • providing the regulator with a list of all workers that are registered as working for you.
