It is not intended to be referred to as generalised advice for employment practices, nor is it to be solely relied upon as an instructional document. It is purely supplementary.
As an employer of overseas workers, you are required to be independently aware of and obey all Australian immigration and workplace laws. It is your responsibility to identify and regularly check your legal responsibilities.
