Foreign Workforce Compliance Seminar
Mon. 17 October 2016, 8:30 am – 10:00 am AEDT
Is your business compliant with Employment Law and Migration Law?
In this timely and practical seminar, FCB Smart Visa and FCB Workplace Law have combined to offer a multidisciplinary take on compliance issues that affect the Hospitality & Leisure industry.
The Hospitality & Leisure industry is enjoying a period of unprecedented growth and expansion in Australia, but at the same time, industry employers are facing an ever-increasing challenge to keep up with the supply of labour that a rapidly growing and inherently labour-intensive industry demands.
Whilst many employers in the industry already have experience with engaging foreign workers (whether sponsored 457s or Student/Working Holiday visa holders) for addressing labour shortages, seasonal peaks and specific tasks, the industry will increasingly need to look internationally to source both short- and long-term labour requirements.
In addition to the already burdensome requirements of Australia’s workplace relations system, at the same time, the Fair Work Ombudsman and Department of Immigration and Border Protection are ramping up monitoring and enforcement activity. We can help you to establish processes to ensure compliance and to get your business equipped for an audit.
