The Harvest Labour Services – Reforms to encourage Australian job seekers to take up seasonal work measure announced in the 2019–20 Budget is a $24.1 million investment over four years aimed at encouraging more Australian job seekers to take-up seasonal work.
On 31 July 2019, the Department published a Consultation Paper, Harvest Labour Services – Reforms to encourage Australian job seekers to take up seasonal work. The Consultation Paper provided stakeholders with the opportunity to express their views on the future of HLS and how the Government can best support Australian job seekers to access seasonal work opportunities and for growers to find suitable workers.
