The Portable Long Service Benefits Scheme commenced operation on 1 July 2019 to ensure that eligible workers in the community services, contract cleaning and security industries can build up long service benefits based on service to an industry, rather than with an individual employer. It is administered by the Portable Long Service Authority.
Long Service Benefits Portability Interim Regulations 2019 have been made
The Long Service Benefits Portability Regulations 2019 came into operation on 1 July 2019. However, to address an administrative error, they have been revoked and re-made.
The re-made Regulations are in the same form as the previous Regulations and are called the Long Service Benefits Portability Interim Regulations 2019 (the Interim Regulations). They commenced operation on 20 November 2019.
They will operate until permanent Regulations replace them. Otherwise they expire on 6 November 2020.
