Written By Brendan Halliday

It is the responsibility of all Australian employers to employ, refer and contract legal workers.
Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents and New Zealand citizens are legal workers and have unlimited permission to work in Australia.
Employers who believe their worker is a foreign national must carry out further checks to confirm that person has a visa with permission to work.
Employers found to have employed, referred or contracted a foreign national who does not have permission to work or is in breach of their visa conditions (an illegal worker) could face penalties of between $3,240 to $108,000 per illegal worker.
Are you 100% confident that all employees of your business have a legal right to work in Australia? Are you conducting ongoing VEVO checks of all visa holding employees?
TSS Immigration have developed an online platform, providing ease of management of visa holders in the workplace, and to assist you to appropriately manage the risk of non compliance.
What is it and what does it do?
A centralised platform where designated stakeholders within an organisation can monitor visa holding employees current and historical work rights
Automatically runs and stores monthly VEVO checks, reducing the risk of non-compliance
Notifies stakeholders of any changes to work rights and visa expiry dates
Reduce your risk of non compliance, and free up your HR teams valuable time
Reporting functionality to provide stakeholders with visibility at all times over your visa holding population
Enter your employees details once, and checkworkrights runs the necessary checks and notifies stakeholders, which reduces your risk of non-compliance.
