VEVO - an essential tool for business


Written By Will Aldous | Thu, Oct 3, 2013 Will Aldous

The introduction of the Employer Sanctions Amendments earlier this year have made it critical for businesses to ensure that they have an internal policy of verifying that all employees hold work rights in Australia.

Businesses are encouraged to register for the Department’s Visa Entitlement Verification Online (‘VEVO’) system to conduct checks on individuals work status.

TSS Immigration wishes to remind employers that in order to be an effective defense employers must complete checks for each visa holding employee at least once every 3 months.

Under the present Terms of Use the VEVO system requires employers to obtain authorization in writing from the visa holder prior to each use of the system. TSS Immigration has made representations to the Department on the difficulties this system present to employers.

Businesses can register for the VEVO system online through the Department’s website: http://www.immi.gov.au/Services/Pages/vevo/vevo-overview.aspx

If you would like further information on how to ensure your business is compliant with the Employer Sanctions regime please contact the registered migration agents at TSS Immigration to discuss how you can reduce risk of non compliance within your business .
