In Australia it is against the law to hire anyone who does not have the appropriate working Visa. A Visa and Right to work check (VEVO) is used to verify a person’s working visa and validity in Australia. Any business found having knowingly hiring a worker who does not have the right visa or whose visa has expired could be fined up to $66 000 per person working unlawfully, while individuals could be fined up to $13 200, and face up to two years imprisonment.
This is especially important to any businesses that hire seasonal workers or back packers throughout the year. These short-term employment contracts tend to attract a lot of works with no Visa or expired visas.
