The RWTA hosted its first networking breakfast for 2018 at the Caledonian in North Adelaide yesterday, and was well attended by the industry. The focus of the event was on Chain of Responsibility and the new legislation regarding labour hire companies and the requirements to be a registered labour hire organisation in order to comply with regulations designed to ensure all companies are meeting fair work obligations. While it is a rapid change of requirements, I welcome to increased regulation as it will ensure that all members of the work force are paid in accordance with state requirements.
It was also great for the SA members to meet the RWTA’s new Executive Officer, Marianne Kintzel, and to hear her direction for the organisation. I look forward to a growing industry association that can provide value to its members.
