A pop up information session into the new portable long service leave benefits will be held in Bendigo today.

From July 1, workers in community service, security and cleaning sectors can now accrue long service leave from job to job within the same industry.

The new scheme came into place after a parliamentary inquiry found workers were denied taking their long service leave, despite working the same job in the same place.

Those wanting to learn more about the scheme can head to the Bendigo Libary between 12-5pm today.
