New labour hire laws to commence 1 March 2018 – CBS news

The Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017 will commence on 1 March 2018.

Anyone who operates as a labour hire provider in South Australia must be licensed. It will also be unlawful for employers to use the services of an unlicensed operator.

A transitional period will be provided to allow industry time to be fully compliant. This means that all labour hire providers must be licensed by 1 September 2018.

Applications must be lodged by 1 August, to allow sufficient time to process applications and ensure that providers are compliant from 1 September.

A new online application form will be available and can be lodged from 1 March 2018. Labour hire providers will be taken to be licensed from the date the licence is granted.
