Advocacy & Government Relations

We work with clients to facilitate immigration advocacy with government and other bodies to deliver your message.

At Hammond Taylor we understand the sensitivities around immigration and employer related issues.

The immigration system changes frequently and involves many other challenges for organisations including public relations and, potential criminal and civil liability of the organisation, principals and officers.

Our expertise in immigration advocacy and government relations includes making representations on behalf of employers, industry bodies and non-governmental organisations about skilled occupation lists, regional concessions, and exemptions.

The Australian immigration system is undergoing a diversification of requirements to meet specific needs across the vast Australian landscape, different industries and demographics. We can help organisations to articulate their experiences and challenges to achieve the best outcomes possible in an immigration context.

We can assist with:

  • Representations and submissions on skilled occupation lists for regional areas, State Governments and Territories
  • Analysis and assessment on an industry-wide basis to support submissions to government on occupation lists
  • Developing research papers and legal submissions on legislative amendments and policy development
