Hi all, Not sure if anyone on here has been through this before or knows what can be done.............. so heres my situation: Im here on a 457 visa, I was working for a company that has gone into receivership, the receivers have stated there is not enough money to pay the employees the entitlements owed. I have made a claim through the Government ~Dept of Education, Employment & workplace relations (Fair Entitlements Guarantee: FEG) but have been told that I am not entitled to any assistance as I'm here on the 457 (after waiting 2 months for a decision). My enquires lead me in circles as the Fair Work Ombudsman state I have the same rights as my Australian companions and DIAC state yes I have the same rights but its not a matter for them its between me and my employer. So has anyone experienced this before? Do I give up, put it down to bad luck? ($20,000 lost) As there is four of us in the same boat (all four of us joined the company at the same time from the uk) is it worth seeking legal advice (obviously costly, no help as on 457 visa)? Any help from anyone will be very much appreciated. Kind regards, Sean PS, New boss is running through the nomination for my 186 visa so hopefully never in this position again. PPS, I really recommend against coming over on a 457 visa, unless your single and have a back up plan.
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHI All I am hoping someone can help or give me some advice, I am currently on a 457 visa and was just about to apply for my PR sponsored visa when my company went into receivership. I have now been informed that I am not able to work for any other company and that I have to find another 457 company sponsor to be able to stay.. I have been emailing recruitment companies, job advertisements etc but keep being told that no one is currently undertaking company sponsorships. My visa is under the Project Administration which is only 40 points so not enough for me to apply for PR on my own. Could anyone point me in the direction of anyone taking on employee sponsorships, I am based in Brisbane at the moment but can go to the sunshine coast as well. Anyones help would be appreciated as I really dont want to have to live back in the UK. Thank you )
