Businesses using labour supply

If you use workers who are not directly engaged by your business e.g. labour hire or subcontractors, you must ensure you have undertaken due diligence to make sure these businesses are adequately registered for work injury insurance. If you do not, you could find yourselves liable for the underpaid premiums and hefty fines.

A labour hire arrangement is one where a labour hire company or agency provides labour/workers to a client/‘host employer’ but the labour hire company (labour hire supplier) is ultimately the employer and responsible for the worker’s remuneration and therefore their work injury insurance.

To check if the business you have engaged is registered with ReturnToWorkSA use our employer lookup feature.

You will be required to provide the name/s of the labour supply businesses you have used, their ABN and the total contract amount paid to each business during the previous financial year when completing your reconciliation statement.

The information you provide assists us in targeting those labour hire businesses which are not doing the right thing. If you are having difficulties finding a match email premium@rtwsa.com or call us on 13 18 55.
