Employers who are unable to meet the new 457 visa requirements may consider the labour agreement system. The employment contract system was introduced for the first time to allow employers to source workers outside the 457 visa program. While very few employment contracts were adopted in the early years of the program, the Ministry of the Interior has revised its work and is now the preferred route to obtain employer-sponsored workers, for whom the criteria of the 457 visa regime cannot be met. An employment contract is a special scheme that employers must negotiate with doha. This agreement usually allows you to sponsor a skilled foreign workforce to work for a period of time and in a licensed occupation. Employers seeking access to an employment contract with work work must prove that they have a satisfactory record and an ongoing commitment to training Australians. This request supports the Australian government`s position that temporary migration regimes should be supplemented and not replace investments in training initiatives for Australians. Employers have recently made real efforts to hire, hire or hire Australian nationals or permanent residents of Australia. They also have an obligation to consult with industry stakeholders, including relevant trade unions and high-level industry organizations, when developing their agreement or to make a real effort. Employment contracts are the only route of migration for skilled workers.
A specific employment contract is developed directly with an employer and is considered only in the event of a real shortage of skills or labour for a occupation that is not already provided for in an industry contract or in a project or surface migration contract. The terms of an individual agreement are considered on a case-by-case basis. Note: There is currently no ANZSCO code for the “skilled meat worker” occupation. It is only for administrative purposes that employers should use code 070499 instead of an ANZSCO code when appointing this position. There are currently nine inter-professional agreements: although longer and more complex than standard trade agreements, employment contracts offer employers considerable benefits such as access to skills that are not on the 457 visa list, reduced English proficiency, work experience or other concessions based on a business case.
