Migration Amendment (Workplace Justice Visa) Regulations 2024

The Migration Amendment (Workplace Justice Visa) Regulations 2024 introduces a new visa category aimed at providing temporary migrants the ability to stay in Australia to address workplace exploitation issues.

Effective from 1 July 2024, the Workplace Justice Visa allows temporary migrants who have faced workplace exploitation to remain in the country for 6 to 12 months, extendable up to 4 years, to pursue workplace justice activities. This initiative forms part of a broader government effort to combat migrant worker exploitation, ensuring fair conditions of work and supporting those affected by exploitation without fear of jeopardising their visa status.

The visa requires certification from authorised entities and allows holders to work while they resolve their workplace issues. The program will initially be launched as a pilot and will be closely monitored to ensure its effectiveness and integrity.

This new regulation aligns with Australia's commitment to uphold human rights and just working conditions for all workers, addressing barriers that deter temporary migrants from reporting exploitation due to visa concerns. The Workplace Justice Visa is designed to foster a fairer workplace environment and enhance compliance with workplace laws across the nation.
