“Labour hire or legal fiction? Successfully managing labour hire workers”
by Fiona Austin, Shae McCartney (Clayton Utz)
There are many benefits of using labour hire. Such as simplifying the resourcing of specific skill sets or volume recruitment of resources to meet fluctuating labour demands. The efficiency and effectiveness achieved by this solution has directly resulted in the significant growth of the labour hire industry. The resulting flexibility and the minimisation of costs achieved by the use of labour hire can be quickly diminished if your supplier does not support their service with sound professional advice and a robust process of deployment to protect their clients from claims of a direct employment relationship.
