The South Australian Labour Hire Licensing Bill 2017 passed Parliament on 29 November 2017.
Once implemented, the laws will support a labour hire licensing regime that:
• makes it unlawful to operate as a labour hire provider without a licence, and for employers to use unlicensed operators
• protects workers from exploitation by providers of labour hire services
• protects licensed labour hire businesses from predatory business practices that may be engaged in by persons unsuitable to be licensed to provide labour hire services
• promotes the integrity of the labour hire industry.
Consumer and Business Services has begun the process of drafting the Labour Hire Licensing Regulations.
