Hefty fines for employers who breach sponsorship obligations - Mechanical workshop north of Melbourne fined $18,900 for underpaying temporary foreign workers, following enforcement activity

A mechanical workshop north of Melbourne has been fined $18,900 for underpaying temporary foreign workers, following recent enforcement activity by the Australian Border Force (ABF).

A total of 111 workplaces across Australia that sponsor temporary skilled workers were visited by the ABF during October.

A number of businesses were sanctioned during the activity, aimed at ensuring employers comply with their sponsorship obligations.

Workers on temporary visas are entitled to the same basic rights and protections as Australian citizens and permanent residents under applicable laws.
