Is there a cap on the number of workers that an approved employer can recruit?
  • There will be initial recruitment caps for all new approved employers entering the PALM scheme. 
  • Initial recruitment caps will only be applied to employers that are new to the PALM scheme, not to employers that are already approved and have demonstrated good performance under the SWP or PLS.
  • However, recruitment caps may be reimposed at any time if there are concerns about an employer’s performance or ability to support workers while they are in Australia.
  • New approved employers can request a review and increase of their recruitment cap when they can demonstrate they have recruited workers for longer than 4 months.
