The South Australian Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017 commenced on 1 March 2018. Under the South Australian Act, labour hire service providers originally had until 1 September 2018 to lodge an application. However, following concerns raised by stakeholders, including Ai Group, the South Australian Government has announced that the licensing requirements will not be enforced until 1 February 2019 and that “businesses may wish to postpone seeking a licence until further information is available.”
