Appeals to the Long Service Leave Committee

Sole traders or contractors who are registered as workers can appeal certain decisions made by the Long Service Corporation. Appeals are made to the independent Contract Cleaning Industry Long Service Leave Committee. Decisions you can appeal include:

  • Refusal of registration as a worker. If you apply to register as a worker and the Corporation finds you are not eligible to register, your application will be refused.
  • Cancellation of a worker registration. If you are already a registered worker and the Corporation finds you should not be registered because you are not eligible, your registration will be cancelled.
  • The use of a deemed maximum rate of pay to calculate a workers’ long service leave payment. If you apply to the Corporation for long service leave and your ordinary rate of pay is higher than a prescribed deemed maximum rate, your payment is calculated at the deemed maximum rate.
  • Refusal to grant an extension of time to pay a levy.
  • Refusal to waive or reduce interest payable on an unpaid levy.
  • Notice of assessment received for an unpaid levy.

We will let you know in writing and include an explanation if you are affected by one of these matters. If you disagree with our decision, you can lodge an appeal with the Contract Cleaning Industry Long Service Leave Committee using the form sent to you.

You must lodge your appeal within 42 days of notification of the decision.
