International students are starting to arrive in Australia, ready to start the new school year and eager to find a job. As an employer, it is important you understand the work limitations imposed on international students.

In addition to undertaking the required work rights checks, when employing international students, we recommend you request from them a copy of the school calendar listing the semester or term dates.
