We have implemented an internal framework which balances the rights and interests of clients with the need to acquire and retain information necessary for the effective administration of the portable long service leave scheme.

Records are kept indefinitely as the scheme provides for itinerant work patterns. Workers often return to the industry after leaving and may add to their previous long service leave entitlement.
Workers are able to access their own personal information recorded by us. This includes their accrued entitlements and information supplied by employers through the lodgement of employer returns.
Employers can access their own personal data, historical returns data, financial transactions and their current employees service accrual and entitlements.
Employers can be told whether an employee is registered and be provided with their worker registration number.
In the pursuit of their duties in administering the scheme, authorised staff may access records of employers and workers.
A National Reciprocal Agreement operates between schemes in all States and Territories of Australia that allows for the combining of service entitlements. Upon the request or authorisation of the worker, service details can be provided to an interstate scheme.
We will not provide information to third parties unless it is required by law, for example mandatory reporting obligations to the Australian Taxation Office, Child Support Agency or Centrelink.
Information that is aggregated and does not therefore identify an individual, may be released for reporting purposes, for example the annual report, actuarial review and statistical reports.
There are several ways in which personal data held by us may be accessed.
Personal records can be accessed through the internet, telephone, email or attendance at our office. Proof of identity will be required.
Internet access is facilitated through a registration number and password.
No personal information of clients is recorded when accessing the website for information purposes only.
Workers can log into our website (using their worker registration number and password) and update their contact details. This information is recorded in the Board’s database.
Employers can log in to the Board’s website (using their employer registration number and password) and update their contact details and submit Employer Returns. This information is recorded in our database.
