Businesses using labour supply
If you use workers who are not directly engaged by your business e.g. labour hire or contract labour, 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 yourself liable for the underpaid premiums and hefty fines.
A labour hire arrangement is one where a labour hire business or agency provides labour (workers) to you, the host employer. The labour hire business is ultimately the employer and responsible for the worker’s remuneration and therefore their work injury insurance.
Where can I find out more?
