Victoria has a new labour hire licensing scheme – it starts on 29 April. And it’s going to affect many businesses (including us!).
Victoria’s new labour hire licensing scheme means that if your organisation provides supplementary resources into your clients, or you use supplementary resourcing, you will have to apply for a licence after 29 April.
From 29 April, there will be a six-month period for businesses to register with the Labour Hire Authority. Starting in October, it will be mandatory for businesses and hosts to be licensed before they can provide or accept contract personnel.
We recommend businesses get onto this sooner rather than later. If you need a licence, don’t get caught short, come October!
We first wrote about the (then) pending Labour Hire Licensing Bill last year, when it was under debate. Our post Victoria’s Labour Hire Licensing Bill – What you need to know could be viewed as a heads up… Since then, the Labour Hire Licensing Regulations 2018 have been established (governed by the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2018).
