Welcome to NEST

 

The National Entitlement Security Trust (NEST) is a national industry trust established to safeguard the entitlements of employees. It is a not for profit trust open to any industry.

 

Any type of non-superannuation entitlement covered by an employment agreement or award can be paid into NEST, the most common of which are annual leave, long service leave, sick leave, severance, redundancy and productivity payments.

 

Whilst other employee entitlement trusts exist, they are generally restricted to specific industries and specific entitlement categories such as long service leave or redundancy. NEST is the first trust that accepts contributions for all types of non-superannuation entitlements across all Australian industries.
