Your rights as a worker when in Australia on a visa

Are you being forced to work for free? Threatened to have your boss report you?

Is your employer paying you enough and giving you all the rights you deserve under Australian law?

Have they threatened you if you try to speak out? Contact the Fair Work Ombudsman to get your voice heard!

They can ensure that you receive appropriate protections which means your visas status will NOT be affected and you could even receive back pay and better working conditions.

“Last year, almost half of the complaints about wage exploitation related to visa holders, with a third involving international students, according to the Fair Work Ombudsman Natalie James.”

West Aussie Migration can advise you on any visa issues you may have so please do not hesitate to contact us via facebook or through our contact details listed on the page. MARN 1387008
