Registering as an Employer

If you are an employer in the contract cleaning industry, you must register with the Corporation.

Please note that a contract to perform cleaning work may be either verbal or written.

The scheme does not cover a person who is:

  • engaged solely to supervise workers; or
  • a partner in a partnership they work for; or
  • a director of the company they work for; or
  • a trustee of a trust they work for; or
  • under a contract of service with a Commonwealth, State, Territory or local government authority; or
  • directly employed by the owner of the premises they clean.

Companies, partnerships, contractors and trusts that don’t employ workers to do contract cleaning work are not eligible to register with this scheme. If workers are unsure if they are an employee or contractor, they may view the information available on the ATO or Fair Work websites to assist them to make this determination.

Employers are required to register with the Corporation within one month of becoming an employer in the industry.

To register as an employer:

When you register as an employer, you will be sent a certificate of registration. If there is a change to the details on your certificate of registration, you have to notify the Corporation of those changes within seven days.
