The Labour Hire Authority has assessed over 5000 labour hire licence applications. This includes licences that have been suspended, cancelled and granted with conditions, as well as applications that have been refused.
This helps protect the 599,000 workers supplied by labour hire providers because providers must continue to comply with workplace laws and pass a 'fit and proper person' test to obtain and maintain their licence. This also creates more fairness for ethical labour hire providers who have sought a more transparent industry with greater integrity.
