Labour Agreements

Bonnie is a specialist for On Hire Labour Agreements.  She has negotiated these agreements for various companies over the years, and is a contributing author on the Migration Institute of Australia's professional development paper on Labour Agreements.  Bonnie uses her advocacy and negotiation skills to assist businesses to develop and implement a strategic approach to their business planning and agreement negotiations with the Commonwealth.

Labour agreements are formal arrangements negotiated between an employer and the Australian Government which lets an employer recruit an agreed number of skilled workers from outside Australia.

The agreement must:

  • identify the relevant skills shortage in the business and why these vacancies cannot be filled by Australian workers
  • specify the number of skilled workers needed from outside Australia
  • the age, skill and English language requirements that relate to the nominated occupations. Semi-skilled occupations can be considered for nominated positions if specified in the agreement.

You can use a template labour agreement if there is one for your industry or your worker’s occupation. If the template does not suit your needs it may be possible to negotiate an individual agreement.

A labour agreement comes into effect when it has been signed by all parties involved in the negotiations and is typically valid for three years.

Common templated agreements are:

  • On Hire Labour Agreement
  • Meat Industry Labour Agreement

Dear Bonnie

I want to thank you personally for your service regarding our employee... The service we received was erudite, professional and prompt.  I understand the intricacies that can be involved in any visa process, however using your services erased any difficulties we would have faced.  From a business point of view I would highly recommend your services to any other companies who are seeking to sponsor an employee.
