Work Rights Check



Have direct access to a free instant Australian work rights checking service.

Fast, simple and ultra-convenient, our work rights checking service makes ours the only workforce compliance online platform that puts your entire screening, induction and checking requirements in one place. As an employer, you have a legal obligation to confirm the citizenship of your staff. For those non-Australian citizens, you need to validate their work rights using the department of immigration’s database (VEVO). WorkPro gives you more. Our innovative, integrated VEVO service means you no longer need a separate VEVO account and checks can be carried out at any point in your recruitment process – with instant results. What’s more, the work rights checking service allows you to process and manage all of your checks at any point in your recruitment process – even if they’re not registered with WorkPro. Rather than go directly to VEVO, choosing a partner like WorkPro gives you a range of additional features to make the whole process easier to manage, monitor and track.

With the WorkPro online platform you can enjoy the benefits of:
  • One-touch processing
  • Just-in-time reconciliations
  • Easy filtering for quick monitoring
  • Automated re-check reminders

Discover how the WorkPro online platform can enhance your recruitment, induction and compliance processes and give you the edge on the competition.

WorkPro: All your work rights checks in one place.

What information can a work right check uncover?

The key risk for companies comes from potentially hiring someone illegally, even unwittingly most non AU citizens will be granted work rights, but how you manage staff who are limited to work a certain number of hours each week? Companies will need to be aware of these restrictions during the hiring process and during employment.

The same rules apply to individuals who have entered the country on a sponsored visa arrangement. If these individuals then look to find a new employer, that employer needs to take on the obligations associated with sponsoring a foreign worker in Australia and understand the arrangements and conditions surrounding the sponsorship.

Finally, there are times when an individual will not be eligible to work – if their visa is out-of-date, for example. In other cases, individuals may enter the country on a student visa that prohibits paid employment, a condition that employers will need to be aware of before hiring a new worker.

This information and detail will be uncovered through an online work rights through WorkPro, integrated with VEVO, making it a crucial step in mitigating the risks that come with hiring employees.
