Licence condition placed on labour hire provider

Following a conviction against Robert Albano, the Labour Hire Authority has placed a licence condition on BridgingWorx Limited’s labour hire licence (VICLHL04753).

Robert Albano was found guilty by the County Court of Victoria of an indictable offence on 6 May 2021.

On the 7 May 2021 the Labour Hire Authority placed a condition on the licence of BridgingWorx that Robert Rocco Albano is to be excluded from all labour hire services provided under the licence.

The Authority obtained documents indicating Robert Albano was at times before the conviction the Chairperson and CEO of BridgingWorx.

BridgingWorx has cooperated with the Authority and has advised that they have ceased involvement with Robert Albano and have ordered a review of the business’s policies and procedures, including engaging a consultancy firm to assist in governance, transparency and social responsibility.

BridgingWorx provides workers to the healthcare and social assistance sectors across Australia.

The Authority will continue monitoring the compliance of the labour hire provider.

Labour hire providers must comply with workplace laws and pass a fit and proper person test to keep their labour hire licences.

The Labour Hire Authority is improving the transparency and integrity of the labour hire industry. Improving the transparency and integrity of the labour hire industry will protect labour hire workers from exploitation and will ensure transparent and compliant labour hire providers do not face unfair competition from dishonest operators.

If you have any concerns about relevant people related to a labour hire licence, such as company directors or officers, not being fit and proper please Report a Problem to the Labour Hire Authority.

Annual reporting

To help licensed providers collect the information and supporting documents needed to complete their annual reporting, we have published an annual reporting guide and checklist.

For most providers annual reporting is short and simple. In developing the annual reporting process, we considered feedback from the labour hire licence application process and made annual reporting more straightforward and easier to use.
