TSS – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Boardroom Sessions

As the dust settles on the transformation of the Work Visa framework, a number of uncertainties loom large for Australian businesses. Bars have been raised, goal posts moved, and hurdles abound!

Currently, around 1 in 5 sponsored employees will change employers during their time in Australia. Under the old regime this may have been an acceptable cost of doing business, however with the introduction of the Temporary Skill Shortage visa and the Skilling Australians Fund levy, costs for employers can easily treble, exacerbated by a shrinking talent pool and an onerous, complex policy framework.

In conjunction with FCB Workplace Law, FCB Smart Visa invite you to an intimate Board Room Briefing for a no-holds-barred examination of the new visa programme, the essential links between immigration and employment law and the importance of strategic ‘migration planning’.

At the end of this session you will walk away with an understanding of:

  • Employers’ sponsorship obligations in the new TSS/482 framework
  • Why the 482 may no longer be the “go to” option that the 457 once was
  • Strategies to attract and retain top international talent
  • How to protect your financial position as an employer of sponsored expatriate employees
  • Tips and tricks for fast and consistent TSS/ENS visa grants
