Queensland’s New Labour Hire Licensing laws – Will you pass the test?


The Queensland Government’s new licensing scheme for labour hire providers came into effect on 16 April 2018 requiring all labour hire providers to lodge a license application by 15 June 2018.

The new laws have serious implications for all labour hire businesses, their clients and other stakeholders. Even if they have lodged their application, they may be denied a licence due to the stringent requirements that have been put in place. All applicants are required to meet mandatory standards to be fit and proper, complying with labour hire laws and being financially viable (ie. able to pay their employees and debts).

In this podcast Michael Fingland talks to Phil Dobbie about the requirements to be met, the consequences of not meeting the test and what action should be taken if directors are uncertain if their application will be approved.
