Fair Work Ombudsman releases case study videos for international students on workplace rights

06 Apr 2022

With many international students taking on work in Australia, it’s important that they understand their workplace rights and entitlements and know where to get advice and assistance.

The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has released two new case study videos – Felipe's Story and Jessica's Story.

Based on true stories, Felipe and Jessica, two international students, shared their experience about how the FWO helped increase their awareness of workplace rights and recover their workplace entitlements.

These videos aim to help:

  • reinforce the message that migrant workers and visa holders, including international students, have the same workplace rights as all other workers in Australia
  • encourage visa holders, in particular international students, to seek assistance from the FWO without fear
  • dispel common workplace myths
  • promote the importance of record-keeping.

We welcome you to share these videos with your networks.
