New penalties for allowing non-citizens to work


On 14/03/2013 the Migration Amendment (Reform of Employer Sanctions) Act 2013 (Cth) amendment to the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) received the Royal Assent with substantive amendments to commence on 01/06/2013. The amendments create a new civil non-fault penalty section and in some instances criminal sanctions in relation to allowing or continuing to allow an unlawful non-citizen to work, in the absence of having taken reasonable steps to determine the person is not an unlawful non-citizen.
