The Victorian Labour Hire Authority relaxes labour Hire Licence Requirements
The Victorian Labour Hire Authority relaxes labour hire licence requirements in light of COVID-19 to support businesses and workers during this unprecedented time.
As of now, no enforcement action will be taken against;
- Labour Hire service providers without a licence
- Hosts that enter in an agreement with a labour hire service provider who does not have a labour hire licence.
However, a complete application for the labour Hire Licence must be submitted to the Authority before midnight 30 June 2020 and there must be no evidence of non-compliance.
Labour hire providers and hosts remain responsible for complying with Victorian and Commonwealth workplace laws such as occupational health and safety laws, workers compensation laws, superannuation laws and applicable accommodation and transportation standards.
