Trades Covered by the Scheme

The CoINVEST Portable Long Service Leave Scheme covers building, construction, electrical and metal workers.

Most work covered by CoINVEST is construction but we also cover reconstruction, renovation, maintenance and installation. Service, maintenance and repair work is also covered under certain trades. Where a worker performs more than five days of covered work in any month, the employer is legally required to record that service with CoINVEST.
