Briefing: New Labour Hire and Contracting Licensing Law

Using contractors or providing workers for temporary work? Under new laws, labour hire providers (including vineyard contracting providers, picking and pruning gangs) must be licensed. What does this mean for you?

Providers and clients of “labour hire services” can be subject to a $400,000 penalty and/or 3 year imprisonment when in breach of the South Australian Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017.

This practical briefing 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 new obligations and minimise the risk of penalties. 

The following key topics will be covered:

- When a licence is required and licence exemptions
- Application requirements and costs
- What clients of providers need to do
- When penalties and imprisonment can be enforced
- Inspection, reporting and auditing obligations
- Overview of related Fair Work Act 2009 obligations
