The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) is concerned by the deliberate exploitation of migrants and visa holders, particularly international students, in some Australian workplaces. We all know workplace exploitation stands in the way of the success of international students, affecting their experience of studying, living and working in Australia.
As the workplace regulator, reaching international students working in Australia and improving their employment experiences is a priority area for us. The FWO has implemented an International Student Engagement Strategy which aims to increase compliance in Australian workplaces employing international students.
Join Fair Work Inspector Sue-Ann Feltus, as she discusses the role of the FWO, your workplace rights and entitlements, and some common issues in the workplace. She will also outline the FWO’s initiatives, tools and resources to help international students with workplace issues.
