Improving the building and construction long service scheme

The NSW Government is improving the long service payments scheme for building and construction workers and their employers.

The scheme provides a portable long service payment for eligible workers, or contractors, who might have multiple employers over their working life. This long service benefit is paid for by a levy on building and construction work in NSW.

We are asking for your feedback on proposed changes to the Building and Construction Industry Long Service Payments Regulation.

These changes include:

  • reducing the levy rate to help save costs for businesses
  • increasing the value threshold for projects that attract the levy to encourage investment
  • introducing penalty infringement notices to improve compliance and enforcement

We want to hear from anyone working in building construction, as well as the general public.

Your feedback will help us improve the long service payments scheme for the building and construction industry in NSW.
