As one of Australia’s leading legal practices, Colin Biggers & Paisley recognises that the promotion and protection of human rights is not just a matter for governments, but businesses, too. That is why we started the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation focused on promoting and protecting the rights of women, children and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We are committed to improving access to justice, reducing unmet legal need and playing a leading role in making the justice system work better. We also believe in strong and active participation of our people to help disenfranchised and vulnerable individuals and groups in the communities in which we operate.

The Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation brings together our entire community offering and is comprised of three streams – pro bono legal services, volunteering and charitable contributions. Find out more here.

Department of Justice and Attorney-General

Legal Assistance Strategy and Funding (LASF) is a relatively small business unit, within the Justice Services Division, of the Department of Justice and Attorney-General which was formed in 2013.

The primary purpose of LASF is to effectively invest in legal assistance, legal profession regulation and law library services and maintain relationships with internal and external stakeholders including community legal centres, ensuring the best possible outcomes for vulnerable and disadvantaged Queenslanders, and the Queensland Government.

Under the legal assistance services program, LASF administers Queensland and Commonwealth funding for the delivery of legal assistance services by community organisations and Legal Aid Queensland.

LASF has worked tirelessly to foster productive working relationships and mutual respect with the sector by maintaining open communication with internal and external stakeholders. Investment in stakeholder engagement has informed Queensland’s strategic direction and positioned it as a national leader in collaborative service planning. To find out more go here.

QLeave administers portable long service leave schemes to help eligible workers build up long service leave benefits based on service to industry, rather than with an individual employer. Workers who change jobs can still accrue long service leave when the hours they work are recorded with the scheme. 

There is no cost for workers to be a member of the scheme. Employers will pay a levy and submit an employer return each quarter, showing the wages of their workers. Once the worker has recorded the required amount of service, they are entitled to be paid long service leave.
