Resources for  Labour Hire Provider, Host, and Worker

The Labour Hire Authority (LHA) is responsible for implementing the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2018. The Act introduced a licensing scheme for providers of labour hire across all industry sectors.

The scheme was established in response to the Victorian Inquiry into the Labour Hire Industry and Insecure Work which uncovered widespread abuse and exploitation of labour hire workers across Victoria.

The key elements of the licensing scheme are as follows:

  • labour hire providers must be licensed to operate in Victoria
  • those who use labour hire providers must only engage licensed providers
  • labour hire providers must report annually on their labour hire activities.
