The end of doggy employment sponsorship coming soon?

Is this an end of doggy employment sponsorships?

The Department of Home Affairs will exchange data with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to check whether the employers and the holders of 457/482 visa are complying their obligations or visa conditions.

This includes payment of salary, whether you’re working for the approved employer, even whether you’re working in the nominated occupation! If non-compliance is identified, the Department may consider cancelling the visa.

In this data exchange program the Department is the source and primary user agency whilst the ATO is the matching agency. The Department will provide to the ATO: 

  • biographical details, including name, address and date of birth of clients who are, or were in the three most recently completed financial years, holders of Temporary Work (Skilled) (subclass 457) or Temporary Skills Shortage (subclass 482) primary visas; and
  • details of the these clients’ business sponsors

It is estimated that the total number of records shared will be around 680,000 which represents around 280,000 individuals!

However, as one of our clients, you don’t have to worry about this as:

  • You will be nominated by a genuine employer who truly understands the value you bring to the business.
  • You will be working in the right occupation.
  • Your wage and work rights will be protected by law as any other Australians.
