Resources: Community services portable long service leave scheme

The Queensland Government has introduced legislation that allows community services workers to accrue portable long service leave entitlements. QLeave is the statutory authority that will administer the portable long service leave scheme for workers and employers. As of 1 January 2021, industry employers will be required to register with QLeave.

From Wednesday 25 November 2020 QLeave will be hosting fortnightly information sessions for employers to help them understand how the scheme will work. Employers can now book to join an information session and apply for pre-registration with the scheme here.

QLeave has also produced a suite of materials designed to help employers self-assess whether they need to register for the scheme or if they need to register their workers.
