IMPORTANT NOTICE: A Declared State of Disaster is currently in place across Victoria. For more information, see: COVID-19 information for licensees
If your venue engages a company to supply individuals to work in your business, such as security guards, cleaners and additional kitchen staff, you may be using labour hire and be a labour hire host.
From 31 December 2019, businesses must only use licensed labour hire providers, or providers who have applied for a licence with the Labour Hire Authority before 31 December 2019 and have not been refused.
Major penalties may apply.
To find if a labour hire provider is licensed, see Register of Licensed Labour Hire Providers. To check if a provider has applied for a licence, see the Received Labour Hire Application public register.
Labour hire hosts (venues) do not require a labour hire licence unless they are providing labour hire services to another business.
See, Labour Hire Authority website for what you need to do and to subscribe to the Labour Hire Authority's e-News.
