Labour Agreements

A Labour Agreement (LA) is a formal contract entered into between the Commonwealth and an Australian business where the business is authorised to recruit overseas workers. A Labour Agreement is designed to provide a flexible solution to support Australian businesses where standard temporary or permanent skilled visa programs are not available, and the employer’s recruitment needs cannot be met through the Australian labour market.

Many industries can utilise labour-hire or recruitment companies to source overseas workers, and such companies can be based in Australia or overseas.  While the use of these companies can be an efficient and cost-effective method to source workers, it is quite a complicated process to use this program.
