Australian businesses can now hire overseas workers via LinkedIn LMT

Overseas Workers can now be hired by Australian businesses through the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa by fulfilling the Labor Market Testing on LinkedIn. The Government has tweaked the rules for the TSS Visa. It has reversed an earlier rule to discard ads on social media as a part of the requirements for LMT.

The fresh rules imply that employers in Australia can satisfy LMT by placing ads in 2 places. One can be the Job Active, the job portal of the government and the other on LinkedIn, as quoted by the ABC Net AU.

The Spokeswoman for Alan Tudge said that the rules are outlined in a way to strike a balance. The Australian workers must be given priority along with recognizing the industry practices for recruitment, added the spokeswoman. Tudge is the Australian Minister responsible for the program.

The rules introduced in March 2018 specified proof of 2 ads. These had to be with a national presence within last 12 months. The changes banned Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and general classifieds sites such as the Gum Tree.

Now in June, ads on LinkedIn are now accepted and the window of the ads has also been decreased to 6 months. EY Immigration Partner Wayne Parcell said that the changes are welcome.

Parcell said that the changes also permit usage of recruitment websites that are industry specific. But ads on LinkedIn that are designed to reach just specific contacts are not acceptable. For instance, posts those are visible only within the network of the user.
