Why Immigration Compliance is Critical for your Business

Description

All organisations employing staff in Australia must comply with immigration legal obligations – are you?

There are 2.1 million temporary visa holders in Australia with approximately 1 in 12 people in the workforce holding a temporary visa.

But many organisations are simply unaware of the legal framework which applies to local businesses employing visa holders. These include strict liability offences with civil and criminal penalties, this liability extends to executive officers, directors and company secretaries, including:

  • the requirement to ensure that all employees and contractors have the right to work in Australia
  • a positive obligation to take reasonable steps to inform staff of their legal duties.

Join us to discuss this overlooked area of risk which every organisation should address.
