Australia’s modern workforce relies heavily on labour hire. 

But while these flexible arrangements offer significant advantages, the shift away from “traditional” employment means the undertaking of often unrecognised (and unwanted) responsibilities. 

Do you understand the significant liability risks assumed by ‘host’ employers? What level of responsibility do labour hire companies (and their insurers) have when one of its workers is injured? What important contractual and insurance arrangements should be considered by these parties to protect themselves?
