Since its a rsms not a 457, they will be giving you the free card of not having to be with them for 2 years but still have the PR if they made the position redundant i would think.

We were discussing that in work last week.

If you hold a 2 year contract concensus of opinion was that they would have to pay up the contract or if they went bust you would be a creditor.

From the visa aspect you would not have broken your committment so the remaining question to DICA is are you able to work anywhere in Australia or still restricted to finding work in a regional area.

I've been led to believe they can let you go without penalty to them if the workload changes. And that you are then free to do as you like regional or not as by then you have the PR and it was based on the orginal job being regional not subsequent ones.

Any agents out there to confirm this?

There is a general thread going about 'employer references' and how you need a reference from your employer re: job description, salary, working hours, which all has to be typed up on company letterhead paper.

Are these employer references required for our application (RSMS 119)? I remember my agent asking for references but i just refered her to my sponsor (it's a weekend now so I won't get a response from her anytime soon!). My new employer requested so I assume received, references when they were doing their background check. I think these were just short and general references though not long detailed cv type.

Out of panic i've spent a good hour (ok, probably about half) looking for details on DIAC website but i cant find a darn thing!! ALSO, if your skill is on MODL (which mine is) do you have to have your skills tested?

Guess these should be questions i should ask my agent. She has never raised the issue so I figured all was fine - until I read threads on here!! arghhhhhhh

If you download a copy of form 47es from the immi website there is a checklist at the back of that of what you have to provide. I had to provide evidence of my qualifications for the purposes of RCB and then employer references and evidence of qualifications (as well as a bunch of other stuff) for my 119 app. I got references for my last three jobs which are relevant to the job I have been sponsored for - on headed paper stating position, dates, salary and the main duties of the job.

P.S. I think you only needs skills assessment for ENS not RSMS.

Hmmm. I haven't done that!! And really can't be bothered to!! Damn stupid DIAC, why cant anything be simple!! Do you really have to state salaries? What happens if employers object to stating salary because its market sensitive or something!?

Why are DIAC interest in our previous salaries? Surely its the current one they want to know!

I supplied references with my application but they were not detailed job specific ones or CVs. They were general letters from companies and individuals I had worked with, not from employers.

Just said stuff like "found him to be very very proffessional", "knows what he is talking about", what a bloody nice fellow" etc

Full details of your work history is already on your application so if DIAC want to spot check any of that they will without you knowing.

As Pony says skills assessment is required for ENS.
It is not usually required for RSMS but DIAC do have the right to ask for it.
I would think it very unlikely in your case though as you do have recognised qualifications. (I had none)

No you don't have to state salaries of previous work.
Yes they will want a full job offer letter or contract detailing conditions of employment though.

Two major things they check is that the job is guaranteed for a minimum of 2 years and the salary is at least the minimum for the type of job as laid down in immigration rules.

These are actually things that protect the immigrant.

We also have one who lodged onshore in June.
Heard nothing so far.
DIAC just contacted the company asking a couple of questions on their side of the application.

We think this may be the CO.

He lodged mid June.

By the way, thank you for the tip about enquiring about receipt of medicals at HOC, I did that and am now awaiting their response.
