  • Advice re unusual offers of employment

    18 December 2017

    There have been recent reports of students receiving offers of employment which require students to use their personal bank account to receive and pay money or buy/sell bitcoin on behalf of the employer and their clients. This is not a reasonable request.

    Should you receive an offer of employment from an employer you have never met, with terms and conditions which make you uncomfortable or seem unusual or suspicious, it is important that you fully research the opportunity to make sure the offer of employment is a genuine one. Also, check that the conditions you are being offered are in line with the legal rights you are entitled to when working in Australia.

    If you’d like more information or advice about these matters, go to Fair Work Ombudsman.
