Webinar explains new rules for hirers and freight brokers

With new rules affecting contracting in transport and forestry now in play, Wage Inspectorate Victoria will host a free webinar to explain how the changes affect owner drivers, forestry contractors, hirers and freight brokers in Victoria.

Amended regulations that make hirers and freight brokers responsible for keeping records to help prove they are meeting their obligations when dealing with contractors were put in place from March 1.

Wage Inspectorate Victoria’s free webinar, being held at 10am on Monday March 15, 2021, will detail the rights and responsibilities of those operating in transport or forestry in Victoria.

For example, hirers and freight brokers must give certain information to contractors before engagement; and contracts must be set out in writing for ongoing or long-term engagements.

The webinar will include a 20-minute slide presentation followed by time for questions.
