Migrants to be allowed to work for South Australian government agencies

A change of rules announced earlier this week will mean that South Australian government agencies can now employ temporary, provisional or permanent migrants with work rights in Australia, in casual, temporary or ongoing public sector roles.

AUSTRALIA DAY CITIZENSHIP CEREMONYThis news comes following the release of a Commissioner for Public Sector Employment ruling that clarifies the employment eligibility of temporary and provisional visa holders.

The ruling is a positive one and it is hoped the government’s position will encourage the private sector to make the most of the wealth of talent and skills amongst temporary and provisional visa holders for future employment opportunities.

Visa holders can download a letter from the South Australian immigration website (www.migration.sa.gov.au) that explains the work rights associated with general skilled provisional visas to prospective employers.
