Workplace Justice Visa Regulations 2024

Workplace Justice Visa Regulations 2024

As of July 1, 2024, the Australian Government has enacted the Migration Amendment (Workplace Justice Visa) Regulations 2024. This regulation aims to address and mitigate workplace exploitation, ensuring fair treatment for temporary migrants in Australia. 

 

Key features of the Workplace Justice visa 

The Workplace Justice vVisa allows temporary migrants who have experienced workplace exploitation to remain in Australia for 6 to 12 months, with extensions of up to 4 years. This visa supports affected individuals by allowing them to work while they engage in activities aimed at pursuing justice, such as participating in legal proceedings or filing complaints related to workplace exploitation. 

 

Eligibility and certification requirements 

Applicants must obtain certification from a designated person, body, or government entity, confirming their experience of workplace exploitation. This certification is essential for the application process and ensures the legitimacy of claims. For detailed information about the certification requirements, refer to the Migration Amendment (Workplace Justice Visa) Regulations 2024

 

Impact on employers and migrants 

The Workplace Justice Visa underscores the importance of protecting migrant workers’ rights. It reinforces the Australian Government’s commitment to human rights and fair labour practices. Employers must adhere to employment laws and maintain ethical standards to avoid legal repercussions.
