With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to change the way we live, work and operate our businesses, we are in truly uncharted waters. This is especially true for temporary visa holders in Australia and their sponsors as the government acts swiftly to protect the health and safety of the wider community.
Many of our clients have been asking us questions concerning the changing situation for employers and employees, and what can be done amidst the current situation. We have put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions for employer sponsors that addresses some of the questions we have heard most often this week: COVID-19: what you need to know as an employer/sponsor
A similar list of Frequently Asked Questions for visa-holders is forthcoming and will be published on our website soon. Watch this space for more information.
