Skilled migration, remote work, and modern slavery – an international perspective


Anne O’Donoghue, Immigration Solutions  Lawyers’ managing director will be attending & speaking at the Thomson Reuters Skilled Migration and Workforce Planning Conference 2023 on ‘Skilled migration, remote work, and modern slavery – international perspective.

Our director Anne O’Donoghue will be speaking at the Thomson Reuters Skilled Migration and Workforce Planning Conference 2023 in Sydney on topic ‘Skilled Migration, Remote Work, and Modern Slavery – An International Perspective’ along with other distinguished speakers. See below for what will be included in the topic.

  • Addressing concerns about the exploitation of overseas workers
  • Tackling the dangers of modern slavery
  • Supporting remote work arrangements in the global gig economy

This conference galvanises government, employers, industry bodies, and unions that will discuss, debate, and design the next step to unlocking the power of skilled migration for Australia’s economic recovery. The administration has allocated more than $36 million to process a crippling backlog of active non-humanitarian visa applications.


The current backlog is estimated at nearly one million people waiting for their applications to be decided, and in limbo within a byzantine visa processing system.

This backlog is against concerns there is a widespread skills shortage that has created a handbrake on the economy. Other than lifting the migration intake, moves are underway to offer better paths to permanent migration and continue attracting skilled foreign workers across areas of need in cities, towns, and regional areas.


Tackling Australia’s widespread shortage of workers across key sectors and attracting talent in a globally competitive marketplace.


Escalate the intake of skilled overseas workers and reduce the red tape to source talent.

Join us this March to ensure your business benefits from Australia’s revamped skilled migration effort. You will hear first-hand from employers, the legal profession, government, and industry bodies about the key milestones and opportunities.
