As the global economic downturn continues, a number of Australian employers that sponsor employees for permanent residence under the Employer Nominations Scheme (ENS) have recently announced redundancies. If your business is one of these, do not be surprised to receive a ‘please explain’ letter from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).

    It is about time DIAC looked more closely at ENS, this system has been abused by some employers for quite some time and continues to be at a time when unemployment and underemployment in this country is getting higher. The government and employers need to ensure they have a better handle on training requirements for the future so our internal supply of skilled people is adequate.
