About the Scheme

On 1 July 2011 a portable long service leave scheme for the contract cleaning industry commenced. The scheme is administered by the Long Service Corporation (the Corporation) and is funded by a levy on industry employers. From 1 July 2021 the levy was reduced from 1.7% to 1.0% of the ordinary wages of cleaning employees and is paid by their employers to the Corporation each calendar quarter.
