The end of the Australian Financial Year means staff review time for many businesses.
It is important to remind businesses who employ 457/TSS visa holders, that these visa holders have been approved to work only in their nominated occupations. While a promotion within the same occupation classification (and any associated salary increase) will generally comply with their 457/TSS visa conditions, a move into a different role must be carefully considered.
If deemed to be in a different occupation, it will be necessary for the business to lodge a new nomination application, with any required Labour Market Testing, before the visa holder commences work in the new role. If the employee is a TSS visa holder, a new TSS visa application will also be required to confirm that they meet the skill requirement for that occupation.
Please feel free to discuss any proposed role changes with your Ajuria adviser to ensure that your visa holders will continue to be compliant.
