LEGAL ALERT: National Labour Hire Registration Scheme expected to commence in 2020

According to a briefing given to Federal Industrial Relations Minister Christian Porter, the Morrison Government is expected to establish a National Labour Hire Registration Scheme in early 2020.

Although the 2019/2020 budget allocation for the Fair Work Ombudsman to establish a National Labour Hire Registration Scheme comes into effect on 1 January 2020, this may not be the Scheme’s start date, given enabling legislation is yet to be passed.

As the scheme will require all labour hire companies to be licensed, those engaged in labour hire arrangements are encouraged to watch for further updates in the coming months.
