It is critical when your business sponsors overseas workers that you are aware of the business sponsorship and position obligations. Breaches of these obligations can result in substantial fines and sponsorship cancellations. Some obligations even apply beyond the term of sponsorship approval.
The main purpose of these obligations is to help protect overseas skilled workers from exploitation. The obligations also ensure the program is being used to meet genuine skills shortages, and not to undercut local labour wages and conditions.
At IMMIGATE we provide free legal advice and information on these obligations as soon as your business is approved as a sponsor. We also offer guidelines and assistance if your business is going through any monitoring activities by the DOHA to ensure that you are compliant with the sponsorship undertakings as per your approved agreement.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss any compliance issues and questions you may have.
