MAKE AN APPLICATION
The start to sponsoring overseas workers require an approval of a sponsorship, labour agreement, or nomination.
Workplace Solutions utilizes Immigration, Administrative and Employment Laws as the principle apparatus to engage various Australian government programs, designed to stimulate the economy. These programs confer Australian businesses with an edge, purposed to strengthen their positions in the global marketplace.
AUDIT - COMPLIANCE - OFFENCES
It is criminal offence for a business to allow persons without work permission to work, regardless of whether there is an employer-employee relationship. It is also an offence to benefit from a sponsor-related event. Breaches to sponsorship obligations and work relation breaches are detrimental to officers of a body corporate.
APPEAL A DECISION
Refusals and administrative actions, such as sponsorship bars, suspensions and cancellations may be reviewed by the Tribunals and Courts. In some cases, employers are required to make an appeal for offshore visa applicants.
REGISTERED TRAINING ORGANISATION
To deliver nationally recognised courses, organisations are required to be registered by ASQA. An RTO may be a public organisation or private organisation. An employer may also apply to become an RTO and may deliver training outside of Australian Apprenticeships, such as ‘fee for service’ courses, ‘pre-apprenticeships’ programs or higher level courses that articulate into tertiary study.
Immigration law is an integral part of corporate advisory in Australia due to the heavy influence and reliance on the Australia migration program.
RESPOND TO IMMIGRATION
Where applicants do not satisfy the Department that certain legal criteria is met, they may seek further information by way of interview or in writing. This includes employers subject to an administrative action.
IN-HOUSE TRAINING & BLUEPRINT
Suitable to organisations wishing to minimise legal costs. Think of it as a DYI kit or having immigration specialists assisting your in-house legals.
Complex matters may include Australian customs, border force, and consultation with stakeholders. Often the legal solution to another area of law is found in immigration law, eg. seeking a FIRB approval may be averted by holding a particular type of visa.
