Before you create a Labour Hire Licensing Online (LHLO) account

A nominated officer is required to be the LHLO account holder and to complete the application for a labour hire licence. If you are a sole trader, you will be the nominated officer.

The Labour Hire Authority (the Authority)has prepared an application checklist which sets out the information and supporting documentation you will need to complete an application. We recommend you review the application checklist and have the information ready before you start to fill out the application form. Once you have started an application, you can save your progress, and resume the application at another time.

If you do not understand a question, select the hyperlinks for help, contact the Authority or seek appropriate professional advice. You must not answer a question you do not understand.

Offence to provide false and misleading information

You must answer the  questions in the application truthfully. Under section 87 of the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2018 it is an offence to give the Authority information that is believed to be false or misleading in a material particular, or to produce a document that you know is false or misleading (without indicating the respect in which it is false or misleading and if practicable providing the correct information). If you knowingly provide false or misleading information you could receive a substantial fine and your application for a licence could be refused, or a licence that is granted could be cancelled.

Contact with relevant persons

The nominated officer should inform a relevant person named in the application that they will receive an email from the Authority requiring the relevant person to provide information as part of the application process.
