If your employer is your approved visa sponsor, they must pay all costs associated with becoming a sponsor, as well as:
When a member sponsored by a large private hospital on a Temporary Skill Shortage visa (TSS) (subclass 482) resigned, her employer sought to withhold over $2,500.00 from her final pay, claiming she was contractually required to repay accommodation and relocation costs associated with her visa.
ANMF wrote to the member’s employer on her behalf contending the employer had breached migration regulation requirements which prohibited them from charging these costs to our member. The employer agreed to cease the action they were taking to have our member repay costs and she was able to move on to start her new job without having to repay any costs.
