Unfortunately, some organisations are requiring all their service providers to obtain labour hire licences without considering whether the arrangement is for the provision of labour hire services, and in some circumstances hosts are requiring their service providers to provide confirmation that a labour hire licence is not necessary.
Hosts should refer to the Authority’s website, the Act and Regulations to consider whether their own arrangements are for the provision of labour hire services.
If hosts are still unsure, they should consider seeking their own legal advice. Hosts should not be requiring their service providers to provide letters of exemption or confirmation that a licence is not required as the Authority cannot provide these.
To find out more about host obligations, please visit the Authority's website.
