Employee Visa Checks Made Easy – About vSure
Employee Visa Checks Made Easy
Many employers struggle to track expiry dates and work conditions of their staff. This is particularly the case when they have many temporary visa holders on board – such as students and working holiday makers.
There are now 1.86 million temporary residents in Australia, so the risk of accidentally hiring an illegal worker is increasing.
vSure is a cloud-based immigration compliance system that makes it easy to keep on top of work rights and visa expiry dates.
The Employer Sanctions Legislation was passed in February 2013. As a result, employers face fines of $18,000 or more for each employee found working without the appropriate work rights.
This new legislation is tough on employers and business owners, putting the onus on businesses to thoroughly check the work rights of employees.
To avoid the new fines, businesses need to prove they have taken ‘reasonable steps’ at ‘reasonable times’ to check employee visas. This can be a tedious and costly process if done manually on a regular basis.
Because vSure is an automated checking system, it gives you the peace of mind of knowing that all staff have appropriate work rights while saving you valuable time that could be spent on other important things for your business!
