Immigration and Work Visas – webinar

About the webinar

Earlier this month, Sarah Thapa joined the NSW Business Chamber for a Workplace Info webinar. where she explained everything Australian businesses need to know when employing overseas workers and as a sponsor of visa holders, including to how to fulfill their general compliance and sponsorship obligations.

Many employers are not aware that immigration compliance is relevant for all businesses regardless of size or whether they hire local employees or employees on 457 visas.

Instances of indifference to these laws have resulted in some Australian businesses getting tied up in unfair work and wage scandals, facing penalties such as heavy fines and even imprisonment.

So what can you do to ensure your business adheres to rules and regulations for migrant recruiting?

In this webinar, we break it down for you. We will take a look at everything you need to know as an employer of overseas workers, a sponsor of 457 visa holders and to how to fulfill your sponsorship obligations.

Specifically, we covered:

  • What are latest legal changes to migration laws you need to know?
  • What are your obligations as an employer?
  • How are Australian employers handling real-life cases?
  • How should you manage end of financial year monitoring and compliance.
