Portable Leave

Labor’s plan will see the introduction of a workers compensation benefits scheme for NSW gig workers similar to one other employees can already access.

Uber delivery drivers and casual employees will be able to claim compensation if injured at work and take entitlements from job to job, if Labor wins the NSW election.

New entitlements would make gig workers more resilient and the labour environment less precarious in general, the state opposition said on Sunday.

The rise of the gig economy has revolutionised the way people can access work but that shouldn’t mean workers should be left more vulnerable.

Gig, disability and home care workers would also gain access to a portable entitlement scheme, allowing them to accrue leave and entitlements in their industry, rather than through their employer.
