Briefing: New Labour Hire and Contracting Licensing Laws

Using contractors or providing workers this coming vintage? From 1 February 2019, labour hire providers (including vineyard contracting providers, picking and pruning gangs) must be licensed under the South Australian Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017. Are you aware of your obligations?

Labour hire providers (including vineyard contracting providers, picking and pruning gangs) must be licensed under the South Australian Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017 where they meet the definition of "labour hire services". It is an offence to offer and use such services where the provider is required to be licensed and significant penalties apply. 

This practical briefing by the South Australian Wine Industry Association presented across SA's wine regions is designed for wine industry employers (wine producers, vineyard owners and wine grape growers) and providers of vineyard contracting services will assist you in being across your obligations and minimise the risk of penalties. 

The briefing will also cover you safety obligations as client and provider of vineyard contracting services. 

The following key topics will be covered:

When is a business required to be licensed? Are there any exemptions?

- How do you know if a provider is licensed?

- What do you need to apply and what is the cost?

- What happens if you use an unlicensed provider?

- Inspection and auditing - who can enter your premises?

- Safety requirements when using external contractors - what should in place?
