On 27 May 2021, the ACT introduced a new licensing scheme for labour hire providers that will better protect workers and promote responsible practices in the labour hire services industry.

All labour hire providers operating in the ACT are required to hold a licence before or by the 27 November 2021 under the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2020 (the Act).

Individuals or organisations who do not have an approved licence by the 27 November 2021 cannot supply labour hire services in the ACT or they will face regulatory action.
