Recently, employers have had to make real efforts to recruit, employ or hire Australian nationals or Australian permanent residents. They also have an obligation to consult stakeholders in the sector, including trade unions and high-level organisations in the sector, or to make real efforts when drawing up their agreement. Employment contracts are the only migration route for skilled workers. The employment contract is intended for foreign workers in order to complement existing Australian employees and you must prove that foreign workers are not undermining Australians` employment or training opportunities. While labour agreements offer some concessions, companies must ensure that Australian workers are given priority. In addition, companies must ensure that foreign workers have working conditions that are no less favourable than an Australian citizen or permanent resident performing work of equal value. . . .
