Horner Recruitment is compliant with the Victorian Labour Hire Licensing Scheme

16 October 2019

We are pleased to advise that Horner Recruitment is compliant with the Victorian Labour Hire Licensing Scheme.

This new Licensing Scheme for Victoria is controlled by the Labour Hire Authority under the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2018. The Act introduces a licensing scheme for providers of labour hire across all industry sectors. If your organisation is a host employer (user of labour hire services) you must also comply with the licensing scheme by only engaging labour services from a licensed provider.

The key elements of the licensing scheme are:

  • labour hire providers must be licensed to operate in Victoria
  • those who use labour hire providers must only engage licensed providers
  • labour hire providers must report annually on their labour hire activities.

The Labour Hire Authority will also undertake education, enforcement and compliance activity and through the scheme, it is hoped that workers will be protected against exploitation from unlicensed labour hire providers and by host employers not engaging unlicensed providers.

Horner Recruitment has lodged its application for our license by the required deadline of 29th October 2019 and we are deemed compliant.

The Labour Hire Authority is unable to advise how long it will take for a Registration number to be allocated. Once a Registration number has been issued we will advise all our clients accordingly.

Should you have any questions at all regarding this new licensing scheme, please feel free to contact either Peter Langford, Director or Tess Jones, Manager – Corporate Services on 9604 2800 or email horner@horner.com.au.
