A labour hire business provides workers to another business and pays a worker’s wages, accommodation or meal allowance either in full or in part. Labour hire services are commonly referred to as on-hire arrangements.
From 1 September 2018 all labour hire providers must be licensed. Businesses can apply online for a licence from 1 March 2018.
It will also be an offence for anyone to use an unlicensed provider.
