Building and Construction Industry Worker Registration - Long Service Leave - New South Wales

Description

You may need this registration if you work in the building and construction industry. This registration ensures that long service entitlements are available to you. As a registered worker, you become entitled to be paid long service leave after you have ten years of service in the industry, regardless of how many employers you have worked for.

Company directors who are performing eligible building and construction work can register for long service leave. They have to work 'on tools' or be directly supervising eligible building work for a majority of their working day. Apprentices and contractors can also register for the scheme.

If you are an employee, your employer should register you to the scheme within seven days of commencing work. Your employer will be required to pay a levy which is pooled into a fund that pays long service leave entitlements.
