The scheme is managed by a Board comprising a Presiding Officer, 3 members representing employers in the industry and 3 members representing workers.
Employers are required by law to register with Construction Benefit Services and send details of your employment to us every 2 months with a levy based on your wages.
The scheme is paid for by your employer and levies must not be deducted from your wages.
Once your employer has registered you, you will receive a Registration Card with a number you should quote when contacting us.
Keep the card with you as you may need to show it at building sites or to future employers.
We keep records of your employment and will pay your long service leave entitlement after you have worked for 10 years in the construction industry.
You can be absent from the construction industry for up to 2 years (or 3 years once you have accrued over 1300 days service) without losing your long service leave entitlement. You will be notified by CBS in advance of any loss of entitlement.
