MyLeave - 2024 Contribution Rate

Following MyLeave’s annual review, the Contribution Levy for the 2024 calendar year will be
0.5% of the ordinary rate of pay.

What we do

Construction workers accrue long service leave with MyLeave based on service to the industry - rather than service to a single employer.  This is the portable nature of long service leave with MyLeave.

Workers are entitled to 8 2/3 weeks of leave after 10 years of service with a pro rata entitlement after at least 7 years of service in the construction industry.

The entitlements are partially funded from contributions made by employers for their workers as they accrue service.   The funds are invested with returns assisting to minimise contributions made by employers.

Portable long service leave helps workforce retention, recognises industry loyalty, and is good for the construction industry.
