As part of a campaign to suppress the number of illegal immigrants and people with lawful visas holding limited or no rights to work – such as students and holders of business short stay visas – being employed in Australia, the legislature enacted the Migration Amendment (Employer Sanctions) Act 2007 which amended the Migration Act 1958 (Cth). It is designed to make employers criminally liable for hiring illegal workers in Australia. These provisions were initially introduced in 2007 and subsequently amended in 2013 in accordance with the Migration Amendment (Reform of Employer Sanctions) Act 2013.
