A Lockyer Valley labour hire company has become the first in the state to have its licence revoked under new mandatory labour hire licensing laws.
The decision comes following a combined investigation involving the Labour Hire Licensing Compliance Unit and consultation with the Fair Work Ombudsman, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and Australian Border Force, RJP Contracting Services.
The tough stance by the State Government was taken for providing false information in an application to the Labour Hire Licensing Compliance Unit.
This now means that the business will no longer be permitted to provide labour hire services in Queensland, however they have 28 days to request a review of the decision handed down.
