Business Growth & Compliance

We are a business-oriented legal practice that fosters business growth through our commercial approach and collaborative partnership model. We take a proactive role in managing the accountability of our business clients, helping them comply with and meet the regulatory requirements. This includes navigating complex processes such as ‘Standard Business Sponsorship’ and ‘Labour Agreement’ applications. Our team also ensures ongoing compliance with mandatory sponsorship obligations, allowing businesses to operate smoothly and without breaches.
  • Review of ‘Employment Contracts’ for foreign nationals:

Ensuring the terms and conditions of employment which are offered to foreign nationals must be equivalent to or no lesser to what is offered to Australian employees.

  • Advice on registration and licencing:

Several occupations require mandatory registration and/or licensing. The requirements differ significantly depending on the state/territory where the businesses operate. Where registration and or licensing are required, we assist in coordinating the process on your behalf to ensure that your employees remain compliant with any local regulations.

  • Assistance with ‘Labour Market Testing’:

Our team assists and advises you on any applicable requirements related to Australian ‘Labour Market Testing’ requirements. We work together with you to undertake and compile a comprehensive ‘Labour Market Testing Report’ that is critical for nomination approval.

  • Training Plan

Businesses often struggle to compile a comprehensive training plan which meets the requirements of the Department of Home Affairs (DOHA). We offer a number of services to assist you in compiling a training plan if you are required to provide one as part of the sponsorship process.

  • Advice on Short-Term Projects:

Certain businesses undertake short term projects including fly-in/fly-out arrangements, contract work and secondments. Where required, we are able to advise you in relation to the most appropriate visa for your employees. We will ensure that we formulate the most efficient strategy that enables you to meet any applicable project deadlines and is best aligned with your company goals.

  • Business Compliance

The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) conducts routine monitoring activities to ensure that sponsors adhere to their sponsorship obligations. The department also requires employers and sponsored employees ensure and uphold their visa conditions.

  • Businesses are monitored during the sponsorship period as well as up to five years after the sponsorship ceases. They are required to:
  • provide records and information to the Minister.
  • inform when certain events occur.
  • ensure the visa holder participates in the nominated occupation, program or activity.
  • not recover from, transfer or charge certain costs to another person.
  • pay travel costs to enable sponsored persons to leave Australia.
  • pay costs to remove unlawful non-citizens.
  • provide training to Australians and permanent residents.
  • not engage in discriminatory practices.

Business directors and managers may become liable and face substantial penalties and fines for non-compliance with immigration laws.
