Welcome to the November 2023 edition of LHA News

Welcome to the November 2023 edition of LHA News.

In this month’s newsletter, we take a broad look – and a deep dive – into the labour hire industry and LHA’s activities across 2022-23, following the release of our latest annual report.

The report reflects the important progress made throughout 2022-23 in the mission to protect workers from exploitation and improve the transparency and integrity of the labour hire industry.

This month, we look at this progress towards our strategic objectives – to create and maintain a fair and lawful labour hire industry, to achieve high impact compliance and enforcement outcomes, and to educate and engage with the industry and community.

Elsewhere in this edition - read about how licence conditions help ensure workers are paid fairly, recent improvements to the LHA website, and our current and upcoming engagement work.

I hope you find this edition valuable.
