I came here to Australia on deputation on 457 visa and have got my permanent residency 4 months back. I am about to exit this company while on my original notice period in my contract, which I signed during my deputation is 2 months (8 weeks). However, since I have a PR now, the company did not reissue my agreement or employment contract.

Now considering I am a PR, I understand the Australian employment law of notice period of 4 weeks will apply? Or should I follow the contract that was signed when I was on a 457 visa?

Request your help.

Thank you in advance.


Your contractual obligations would still apply. The periods specified under employment law apply where there is no agreement to the contrary.
