Join Michael Walker and John Unger from TSS Immigration - - as they clarify your employer sponsorship obligations and take you through strategies to assist in the management of your visa holding employees in relation to compliance and record keeping. Many HR teams face challenges when using the 457 visa programme. These can be related to implementation, compliance and keeping up with the frequent legal changes to the programme.

All Australian employers who have entered into a Sponsorship Agreement (have SBS application approved) with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection have obligations under the Migration Act. These obligations must be met, tracked and managed.
