Labour Hire Providers

Labour hire businesses operate in a complex legal environment, managing commercial terms with their clients, their many obligations as an employer, worker safety issues, site relationships with the host employer, and in some states and territories an additional layer of registration and regulatory requirements as providers of labour.

At WorkLegal we support labour hire providers in negotiating suitable terms for the supply of labour and navigating the legal issues that go with operating as a labour hire provider.

We advise labour hire businesses that want expert workplace legal advice to help them to operate effectively and successfully as a labour hire provider.

Who Will You Deal With?

Our legal practice director, Scott McSwan has more than 20 years’ experience working with labour hire businesses in central Queensland and across Australia including in black coal and hard rock mining, trades, professional services and other industries.
