Long service leave
Long service leave is a period of paid leave you may use after ten years’ service with the same employer, and further paid leave after each additional period of five years’ service with that employer.
The Long Service Corporation administers a portable long service benefits scheme for building and construction industry workers in NSW. The scheme was created in 1975 under NSW legislation.
Your employer will register you with the Long Service Corporation so your service is recorded from the day you start your apprenticeship and provides ongoing accrual of long service leave irrespective of the number of employers you are employed with.
