Applicants must declare they comply with a range of existing laws as part of a labour hire licence application. These are not new legal obligations created by the labour hire licensing scheme. These are current legal obligations such as paying taxes and superannuation and providing a safe place to work.
To help providers and hosts follow existing Victorian and Commonwealth laws, here are some helpful links:
- Taxation laws
- Superannuation laws
- Occupational health and safety and workplace compensation laws
- Labour hire industry laws
- the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2018 (Vic.)
- a provision of an Act or law of Victoria, the Commonwealth, another State or a Territory imposing an obligation on a person in relation to labour hire.
- Minimum accommodation standards
If you supply apprentices and trainees make sure that you are registered with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority.
Host have a range of responsibilities under Victorian and Commonwealth laws regardless of whether it involves labour hire arrangements. For example, under Occupational Health and Safety laws, hosts and providers are responsible for providing and maintaining a safe work environment for all workers including labour hire workers.

Applicants who are not yet providing labour hire services will be required to declare that they have in place a plan to follow all relevant laws and submit this to the Authority on request.
