Labour Agreement Stream 186

The position(s) an employer wishes to fill under the proposed employment contract must be qualified, which means that it must be classified as occupational qualification level 1 to 4 in accordance with the Australian and New Zealand Standard Occupational Classification (ANZSCO). This position also does not have to be an eligible profession for appointment under the TSS visa program. Where such an agreement exists for the sector of activity of an undertaking, the individual employment contract, if approved, shall contain the same conditions as those laid down in the broader inter-trade agreement. The company cannot ask for concessions, such as for example. B derogations from qualified visa standards (all relevant concessions would have already been negotiated with key stakeholders in the sector at the time of negotiation of the inter-professional employment contract). You must have a knowledge of English approved under the employment contract for your subclass 457 or subclass 482 visa that is suitable for them to practice your profession to which the position is related. If you are taking the permanent stay pathway and applying for an ENS LA subclass 186 visa, you may not need to prove your knowledge of English, as you would have already done at the time of your visa application for subclass 457 or Subclass 482. Before applying for an employment contract, the employer must first consult the relevant stakeholders in the sector. This is not necessary if the company wants an appointment: as an approved sponsor with a loan, your foreign collaborators can be employed with a third party. However, they must remain the direct employer of all foreign workers sponsored under an employment contract for the hiring sector and foreign workers must regularly receive their wages based on the remuneration of equivalent Australians, regardless of a contract. Severe penalties apply when employers without temporary employment are found to be in breach of the terms of the recruitment contract. Applicants to this flow must meet the age, skills and English requirements of the relevant agreement, in addition to the relevant health and character requirements.

Employers must continue to demonstrate persistent labour market needs instead of simply transferring temporary visa holders to permanent residence.
