Sydney Chapter Meeting on the 9th May 2018 was titled “Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) Visa: what this means for your business' global mobility program" and hosted by Fragomen.
The panel consisted of:
- Kate McCall, Senior HR Adviser, International Mobility, Herbert Smith Freehills
- Sasko Markovski, Partner, Fragomen

Facilitated by Charles Johanes of Fragomen, discussed the key features of the new TSS visa, what businesses are doing to adapt to the new regime, the impact on global mobility programs and talent acquisition strategies and how to navigate the road ahead. The discussion covered the practical implications of the new regime:
- Labour Market Testing requirements

- Renewal restrictions in respect of occupations on the Short-Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and impact on workforce planning
- Increased compliance focus with the new 'naming and shaming provisions', data sharing arrangements and tips for developing a robust immigration and compliance program
