Labour hire licensing

The Labour Hire Licensing Act 2017 (Qld) regulates the provision of labour hire services in Queensland through a licensing scheme. This has an impact on the use of external companies, and on UQ in the provision of staff, consultants, contractors, and researchers to external companies. See Information sheets below for further details.

Due Diligence Requests

Due diligence is the investigation, or reasonable exercise of care, that an organisation or person is normally expected to take before entering into an arrangement (normally through an agreement or contract) with another party.  Or in plain English, ‘doing your homework before making a decision’, and is sometimes referred to as Third Party Due Diligence (TPDD).

Due diligence requests are increasingly being adopted as part of an annual or cyclical Partner Due Diligence (PDD) process that results in requests to UQ to disclose information and/or to complete (online) declarations for existing and new UQ partners. This is typically in response to their own legal/regulatory requirements and/or their strategic approach with regard to their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

More information is available on the Due Diligence Requests site.

Where additional information or guidance is needed, due diligence requests can be directed to for review.
