Seven temporary Australian visa holders to be deported next month
Seven temporary Australian visa holders are likely to be deported from Australia after being sacked by their employer earlier this month.
The conditions of their temporary Australian visas mean that they cannot stay in the country for longer than 28 days if they do not have sponsorship from an Australian employer to work in the country.
According to the Western Australian Business News, the men are looking to lodge complaints against their employer for an unfair dismissal and exploitation of workers' rights.
Meanwhile, the Australian government has been working hard to improve the temporary Australian visa programme (subclass 457) so that foreign workers' rights in Australia are protected from exploitation.
The Australian Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with emigrating to Australia.
