In focus: wage theft of migrant workers

How will I know if I am being paid correctly? What is the Wage Inspectorate Victoria, and what do they do? How can migrant workers who have been underpaid get support to get the money they are owed?

This training session is an opportunity to learn about wage theft, how to use pay calculators to find out if you are being paid correctly, and where to get help. You will also hear from Wage Inspectorate Victoria on their work cracking down on wage theft, and how community members can access their support.

This training is for emerging migrant and refugee community leaders, activists and volunteers, bicultural workers, and community service providers assisting migrant workers and their community members about their issues at work.

MWC "Solidarity Hour" series

Objective and format

The MWC "Solidarity Hour" series aims to build capacity in migrant communities and community service organisations to address issues related to labour exploitation among migrant workers. They are short online sessions facilitated by expert trainers. The sessions include group discussion, Q&A, and hand-out resources.

Why train with the Migrant Workers Centre?

MWC is a leading organisation in migrant workers' rights. It is the only service of its kind in Australia, offering free and confidential case management support to migrant workers experiencing workplace issues, and leading research and advocacy for migrant workers' rights in Australia. Our education program delivers critical information on workplace rights to thousands of migrant workers every year, and builds capacity in migrant communities by training and employing community leaders as Bicultural Educators. 

Custom training sessions

We can design custom sessions to meet the needs of your community or program participants. If you have any questions or would like to discuss organising a session, please contact Alba Khouri, Project Support Organiser ([email protected]).
