The Victorian Labour Hire Licensing Scheme is a new business licensing system to protect vulnerable labour hire workers from exploitation and to regulate the provision of labour hire services.

Licensing is not yet in force and compliance obligations for labour hire providers and users, including those relating to licensing, are not expected to begin before early 2019.

In the coming months, an extensive information and education campaign about obligations under the Act will begin and will include information about the transition period for applying for a licence.

Public consultation on the making of regulations to support the operation of the Act will also start shortly.
