457 visa holders – workplace rights and entitlements

Under the Migration Act, your sponsor is required to meet a number of obligations which ensure that you are provided with appropriate terms and conditions of employment.

These obligations require your employer to:

  • provide you with equivalent pay to that of any Australian employee who has the same occupation as you in your workplace
  • only require you to perform duties that relate to your approved occupation
  • pay reasonable and necessary travel costs to allow you and your family members to leave Australia, if requested in writing by you, your family or DIBP on your behalf
  • not make you pay for any costs relating to your recruitment, or the costs associated with the business becoming or being an approved sponsor, including migration agent costs
  • make sure that you do not work for any other employers without authorisation
  • pay you in a manner that is capable of being verified by an independent person (e.g. electronic funds transfer or cheque)

It is also important that the Employer is aware of these obligations.
