Portable long service makes it fairer and easier for Victorians working in community services, contract cleaning and security to access long service benefits.
Victoria’s Portable Long Service Benefits Scheme allows workers to build up long service based on length of service to their industry, not length of service to one employer.
The Portable Long Service Authority will work closely with businesses to help them understand their obligations as employers and with workers to understand what they're entitled to.
Employer Levy announced
The Portable Long Service Benefits Governing Board met on 9 May 2019 and has determined the Employer Levy to apply to the Portable Long Service Benefits Scheme as follows:
- 1.65% for community services
- 1.80% for contract cleaning
- 1.80% for security
The Portable Long Service Benefits Authority, responsible for the administration and operation of the Scheme will liaise with employers to ensure they understand their obligations under the Long Service Benefits Portability Act 2018 and how the levy will be applied.
