The new Labour Licensing Act 2017 (QLD) deadline is 15 June 2018.
This broad legislation introduces a mandatory licence scheme:
- All labour hire providers in Queensland who carry on a business of supplying workers to work for any other person must have applied for a licence before 15 June 2018; and
- All users of labour hire services in Queensland must ensure they only use licensed providers from 15 June 2018.
As the definitions of ‘provider’ and ‘labour hire services’ are extremely broad, this wide-ranging legislation will impact almost every business operating in Queensland in some way, and the consequences for non-compliance are significant. We believe a large proportion of business owners may be at risk of non-compliance and may not even know it.
