What is Portable Long Service Leave? HOME > What is Portable Long Service Leave?

Portable long service leave is paid leave given to workers for their service to the industry, rather than continuous service to one employer. Our schemes allow workers in these industries to continue earning long service leave benefits even if they change employers or move interstate.

Similar schemes for the building and construction industry operate in all Australian states and territories. Some states and territories also operate similar schemes for the contract cleaning industry. Service accrued in other states may contribute to a worker’s overall benefit.
