The Recruitment and on-Hire Industry is a key stakeholder in the labour market. To effectively operate a recruitment business you are required to comply with statutory operating rules, comply with industry standards, ensure compliance with multiply modern awards and meet the contractual demands of government and corporate clients.

Failure to meet these obligations can result in your business being exposed to fines, liabilities and a negative operating profit. It is also important to keep abreast of the ever-changing employment law landscape and how it effects the on-hire market.

Burke Mangan Lawyers has extensive experience in the recruitment and on-hire industry having worked in, and provided services to, global recruitment businesses and the industry peak body.
