The Inquiry has recommended that a licensing scheme be set up to regulate labour hire operators. The report also called on the Victorian Government to advocate for a national licensing scheme for labour hire operators, through the Council of Australian Governments.
The Victorian Government has accepted in principle the recommendations regarding licensing and advocacy to the Commonwealth. The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources will now consult further to develop the structure of such a licensing scheme and what industries should be regulated.
There are a range of other important findings and recommendations in the comprehensive and wide ranging report, which was presented by the Chairman of the Inquiry, RMIT Professor, Anthony Forsyth. These will be closely examined by the government with a view to developing a response to those matters over coming months.
