Note: Further discussions are planned with representatives of the milk, snow, hospitality and meat sectors on their employment contract projects. In the meantime, however, interim changes are being made to existing agreements to avoid negative effects on businesses due to the changes made in March 2018, given the short time frames. An employment contract is an agreement between a company and the Australian government to facilitate the sponsorship of foreign workers in the absence of availability. Businesses must demonstrate satisfactorily to the Home Office that there is a labour shortage in the sector and that the company is committed overall to employing Australian workers rather than encouraging overseas labour. The terms of the fast food contract are already fixed and non-negotiable. Employment contracts with the Minister of Religion are subject to separate requirements. We advise you to get more information about visas and entry instructions if this concerns you. Labour agreements are formal agreements negotiated between an employer and the Australian government that allow an employer to recruit an agreed number of skilled workers outside Australia. The employment contract does not allow for benching, benching, hiring workers without pay or benefits, or forced labour abroad while awaiting their next assignment. Similarly, vacation pay, which is linked to a shortfall in allowances, is not allowed without the prior approval of the ministry. According to immigration policy, when a company operates in an area already covered by one of the above interprofessional agreements, there would generally be no other type of employment contract (for example. B a company-specific agreement). Individual applications in such cases must be approved by the Minister of Immigration.

For the purposes of the meat industry employment contract, the TSMIT is based on a 38-hour week without penalties and overtime. It is also necessary to demonstrate that the company has the financial means to support the number of workers it wishes to promote or designate under the employment contract. This requires a letter of assistance from an accountant (who must be either a registered accountant (CA) or a certified accountant (CPA) who presents and confirms important financial information about the company.
