The State Government introduced legislation to repeal the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017, following feedback raised by stakeholders.

A taskforce has been established to consider whether existing laws are sufficient to protect labour hire workers from exploitation, and recommend changes if needed.

Legislation to repeal the Labour Hire Licensing Act was introduced into Parliament on 28 November 2018. More information will be provided when available.
