The Local Jobs First Act 2003 includes a strengthened Local Jobs First compliance framework to help deliver the best outcomes for local industry and workers. The Local Jobs First Commissioner is responsible for overseeing and enforcing compliance. Under the Act, a person or agency to which the Local Jobs First Policy applies must comply with the Local Jobs First Policy.

The Compliance Strategy outlines how the Local Jobs First Commissioner will encourage, monitor and enforce compliance with Local Jobs First Act 2003, Local Jobs First Policy and Local Industry Development Plans. To view the Local Jobs First Commissioner’s Compliance Strategy, click here.
