VCOSS submission to Portable Long Service Scheme draft regulations

VCOSS supports the purpose of the Portable Long Service Leave (PLSL) scheme, to provide employees access to an entitlement they often miss out on because of short-term funding arrangements and insecure work. Portability can help improve employee retention rates and boost wellbeing and satisfaction.

However, the portable long service leave scheme has significantly increased costs for community service organisations.

Funding contracts and indexation must account for the increased costs of PLSL.
