Extension of coverage of Victorian Portable Long Service Leave Scheme

On and from 1 January 2020, National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and certain children’s services providers come under the Portable Long Service Benefits Scheme.

From that date, an activity funded by the NDIS, as well as services provided by licensed children’s services and approved providers under the Education and Care Services National Law, are included in the scheme as community services work.

This means that eligible employers, with workers undertaking these types of work, will need to register with the Portable Long Service Authority by 31 March 2020.
