Employers are required to report service quarterly for their Workers who are engaged in trades that are covered under the Victorian Construction Industry Long Service Leave Scheme.
Missing service occurs when Employers do not comply with this requirement.
How do I know if I am Missing Service?
You can identify if you’re missing service by reviewing your employment history and Annual Statements of Service.
Your annual Statement of Service is sent out to you each October. This contains a summary of all your service to date and a breakdown of all the service reported by your employer for the last financial year.
You can review all your previous Statements of Service on by logging in to our Online Service mobile platform.
What do I do if I’m missing service?
If there is service missing from your current Employer we recommend you speak with them about this first. This gives them the opportunity to review your reported service.
If you do not feel comfortable talking to your Employer or there are multiple service periods missing, complete the Missing Service Investigation request.
What Information do I need to complete the Missing Service request?
You will need to provide the following to complete your Missing Service Enquiry:
- CoINVEST Registration Number
