We have identified several applications in which we suspect inaccurate information has been supplied about the supply of visa workers.
We work closely with other State and Commonwealth Government agencies to ensure the accuracy of information received, including the Fair Work Ombudsman, Australian Border Force (Home Affairs), Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, WorkCover Queensland, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and local councils.
Labour hire providers must ensure that they are providing accurate information in their applications to enable us to properly assess their suitability to obtain a licence. Strong penalties apply for providing false and misleading information. We will suspend licences obtained as a result of the provision of incorrect or misleading information, and will cancel licences granted to those who are no longer fit and proper persons.
We will also be acting on a number of complaints received from the public about unscrupulous labour hire operators.
