Portable Long Service Leave - Worker Registration - Northern Territory


Construction workers who wish to accrue portable long service leave must register with NT Build.

The portable long service leave scheme enables registered workers in the construction industry to qualify for long service leave based on their service to the industry rather than service with the same employer.

Service type


A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.

Eligibility requirements

The scheme covers workers performing repair, maintenance, extension and demolition work in commercial, domestic, industrial and civil construction.

To be eligible for the scheme a worker must:

  • be employed to carry out construction work in the NT;
  • work for the private sector, not government;
  • not be working in an administrative, clerical, managerial or professional capacity.

Workers employed either full-time, part-time, as a casual or as a labour-only contractor are eligible to register.
