Melbourne, 10 September: The Government has announced further measures to help protect vulnerable workers by providing additional information and resources to visa holders so they understand their workplace rights.
The Government is rolling out improvements to visa grant notices across a range of temporary visas, with notices to students and temporary graduates to be updated next. The Government has also launched a new Pay And Conditions Tool (PACT) so workers can easily check their pay rates.
The best defence for temporary visa holders against being underpaid or treated unfairly in the workplace is to know their rights, Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash said today.
“All workers are entitled to the same pay, conditions and protections under Australian law, regardless of whether they are a temporary visa holder, a permanent visa holder or an Australian citizen,” Minister Cash said.
“Every person who is granted a temporary visa receives a visa grant notice from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. We’ve recently improved the information in these notices so working holiday makers and 457 visa holders fully understand their workplace rights on issues including wages, discrimination, bullying and harassment.”
