Community services industry (portable long service leave) employer registration - Queensland


You will need to register with QLeave to engage one or more workers (including eligible sole traders contractors) to perform community service work in Queensland. This includes workers who perform community service work, and those who support, supervise or manage the provision of community services. QLeave collates the amount of long service an employee has acquired while working in the community service industry.

Once registered, QLeave (portable long service leave) allows an eligible worker, who works in the community service industry, to count service in the industry towards gaining a long service leave entitlement, regardless of the number of employers for whom the work was carried out.

Service type


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

  • support, supervise or manage the provision of community services.

This registration remains in effect until the employer stops engaging workers to perform work in the community service industry. The registered employer may then, by notice, apply for cancellation of registration.
