The Portable Long Service Authority is coming to Broadford to help inform employers of the new Portable Long Service Scheme in Victoria.

Meet Education Officers from the Pop Up Authority who can help you register your business with the new statutory authority and guide you through how to submit a quarterly return.

Since the introduction of the Long Service Benefits Portability Act on 1 July 2019 workers will now be entitled to long service leave or benefits after working for seven years in their industry, irrespective of how many employers they have worked for over that time.

The new state government statutory authority will manage the scheme while employers will pay a levy to finance the payment of these entitlements to workers. The levy will be capped at about 3 per cent.

Employer registration

From 1 July until 30 September 2019, businesses who employ workers in roles covered by the Portable Long Service Scheme must register as an employer with the Portable Long Service Authority.

This can be done online at Portable Long Service Authority website.

If you require assistance to determine if you need to register, you can contact the Authority on 1800 517 158.
