Our Establishment

On 1 July 2005 the Queensland Government commenced providing portable long service leave benefits for the contract cleaning industry in Queensland. QLeave administers the portable long service leave scheme on behalf of the Contract Cleaning Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Authority pursuant to the provisions of the Contract Cleaning Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Act 2005.

Portable long service leave is the paid leave given to workers for service to the contract cleaning industry rather than continuous service to one employer.

The portable long service leave scheme is administered in accordance with the Contract Cleaning Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Act 2005 and the Contract Cleaning Industry (Portable Long Service Leave) Regulation 2015.

Funding the Scheme
The portable long service leave scheme is funded by a levy paid by employers each quarter. The levy paid is calculated on the ordinary wages of their workers. The money collected is invested and the accumulated funds then pay the workers' long service leave claims.
