The Migrant Employment Legal Service (MELS) is a state-wide legal service addressing the exploitation of migrant workers. At MELS, we offer free and confidential legal advice and representation to migrants and temporary visa holders in New South Wales.
Who we help
MELS offers legal help and advice to permanent residents or Australian citizens from a culturally and linguistically diverse background or people on a temporary visa (including refugee, working holiday and student visas).
Legal advice and casework
We help with: underpayments, unfair dismissal, bulling, harassment and more.
Law reform and advocacy
We work on creating change within our community through law and legal services reform.
We run community workshops to educate migrants on their employment rights.
