Are your employees working legally in Australia?

working legally

Workplaces with employees currently holding a visa will need to take extra steps to ensure the employees are working legally in Australia. On 1 July 2015, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service merged to create the ‘Australian Border Force’. The merger is part of a tougher compliance regime on temporary visa holders and also allows for greater sharing of information amongst Commonwealth agencies.
