From today labour hire providers will have six months to apply for a licence under the Victorian Government’ Labour Hire Licensing Scheme.

The commencement of the scheme announced today by Minister for Industrial Relations, Tim Pallas, makes the system fairer for workers, businesses and providers.

Information on the application process can be found here.

The scheme seeks to achieve a level playing field, so that labour providers do not face unfair competition from unscrupulous operators, and workers are not subject to exploitation.

To operate legally in Victoria from 30 October 2019, labour hire providers must have applied for, or have a labour hire licence.
