Event description
Meet the experts from Legal Service, Career, Migration, Hospitality, Education and Visa in one evening!

About this event

== Session 1 Know Your Employment Rights ==

Research has shown migrant workers are unsure about their workplace rights (Farbenlum & Berg, 2020). Migrant workers often ask if it is true that:

  • casual employees don't get a break;
  • they are not entitled to Australia’s minimum wage;
  • they break the law if they accept wages less than the minimum wage or they accept payment in cash; &
  • lengthy unpaid work trials, work placements or internships are okay as entry requirements of an industry.

A presentation will be delivered by Circle Green Community Legal, a community legal centre specialising in employment, tenancy, migration, and family & domestic violence.

This is a rare opportunity and it will be EXTREMELY USEFUL for migrant workers.

Understand your rights at work and learn to seek legal help without the fear of your visa being cancelled.
