Welcome to the July 2022 edition of Labour Hire Authority News.

With such cold weather of late, it is fitting that we update you on some of the work we have done with accommodation provided by labour hire providers to their workers.

Any accommodation organised by labour hire providers  for workers must meet the minimum standards  which are required by the Labour Hire Licensing Act 2018 and the Labour Hire Licensing Regulations 2018. There are also rules about deductions for accommodation that all providers should know. A number of providers have not done the right thing resulting in bad accommodation and unfair wage deductions. 

If you organise accommodation for your labour hire workers, then we encourage you to ask yourself: would it pass muster?

If not, then it’s time to make a change. The LHA’s compliance inspectors are checking out accommodation as part of their program of workplace inspections.
