Maximum claim payments

A capped weekly rate of pay was introduced for all claims on 1 January 2009, to ensure the future of the Building and Construction Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Scheme.

The cap rate is reviewed annually and before 1 July each year. At this time, the Minister fixes the cap for the following financial year.

For the financial year of 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, a cap of $1,980 per week will apply to all worker claims and employer claims for reimbursement paid by QLeave.
