Immigration and Citizenship:595359

Question:

REQUIREMENTS QUESTION 1 Read the case Muradzi v Minister for Immigration and Citizenship [2011] FCA 976 (26 August 2011) which is attached to this assignment. Examine and discuss (in plain English) the reasons of Tracey J for his decision and the implications of this case in relation to valid visa applications. Explain and discuss the principles of statutory interpretation adopted by Tracey J (if any) in reaching his conclusion.

Answer:

Facts of the Case
The appellant in this case wanted to obtain a migration visa for Skilled (Provisional)
(Class VC). The Migration Act 1958 (hereinafter referred to as the
“Act”
) and the Regulations
effected that the application made by her were required to be received no later than 15 March
2010 by the Department of Immigration (
“the Department”
). This was done since the
substantive visa which was held by her expired on the very day. Regulations 2.12 along with
section 48(1) of the Act provide that a non-citizen who does not hold a substantive would not be
allowed to apply for a Skilled Migration Visa. It was required by the Regulations that the
application for the visa was to be lodged via the means of the internet, couriered delivery or
prepaid post.
On the 15th of March though the applicant attempted to lodge her application via internet
due to unexpected technical failure she was unable to do so. The she attempted to lodge her
Title
application by to an office of the Department of Adelaide since it was the office for processing
application of general skilled migration. She made two transmissions however they do not seem
to have come to the attention of the Department until the next morning.
Ground of Appeal
The appeal was made on the below mentioned grounds:

The issue is the preferred or correct construction of Item 1229 sub item 3(a) in Schedule I
of the Migration Regulation.

The case of Fang and Onea would not apply to the method of lodgment.

The conclusion of not being able to lodge the application via internet was an intended
inconvenience, was an err of law.
Judgment
Tracey J. referred to the cases of
Onea, Raveca v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural
Affairs
1
wherein Finkelsteing J had applied the principle of
Wu Yu Fang & 117 Ors v The
Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs & Ano
r
2
. His honor in this case stated that:
“In ordinary circumstances it would not be unusual for a court to hold,
conformably with either s 25C of the Acts Interpretation Act or the
applicable principles of statutory construction, that a failure to make an

[1996] FCA 106 (28
February 1996).
Title
application in accordance with a form that is prescribed for that purpose
will not render that application a nullity.”
3
The same view was required to be be taken by the Court for the
construction of item 1229(3)(a) as the approach has been taken for the
provision equivalent to sub-items (1) which deals with the forms that are
prescribed and (2) that deals with the amount of fees.
As has been already noted in the case of Onea and Fang in  which provisions
were considered equivalent to item 1229(1).
The court has in other cases in which the defect in the application process
was that the payment of fees had not been done a similar approach was
taken by the court (
Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs v
Hayman
(1999) (per Finkelstein J)
4
;
Minister for Immigration and
Multicultural Affairs v Sharma
(1999) (per Weinberg J)
5
.)
It was thus opined in the case that all the provisions form the part of the
same scheme of prescriptive legislative scheme. If any of the scheme’s
requirement are not met the consequence would be that there has not been
any valid application which had made and thus there would be a prevention

Title
on the Minister to consider such purported application as a valid
application.
Thus there was a failure on the part of the appellant to comply with the
requirement of the item 1229(3)(a)
6
meaning thereby that there was no
valid application that had been made by her and thus there was no binding
on the delegate of the Minister to consider such application. The decision of
the Federal Magistrate was upheld by Tracey J.
Implication of the Case
The implication of the case on Visa application would be that for a visa
application to be a valid visa all the requirements under item 1229(3)(a) are
to be complied with. Even if there is a slight variation from the prescribed
method of application such an application would not be considered to be a
valid visa application and the Minister’s delegate would not be bound to
consider such an application. This decision further establishes that the
legislation has to be complied with strictly for there to be valid visa
application as deviation from such a legislation can lead to non-compliance
which can further lead to the visa application not to be considered. Thus
care needs to be taken at the time of visa application that all the
requirements are followed which includes applying for the visa in the same
manner as had been mentioned, this cannot be considered as anything
separate from the requirements of a valid visa application.

Migration Regulations
1994
.
Title
Rule of Interpretation
In the said case Tracy J. used the literal rule of interpretation. This rule is
also known as the strict rule of interpretation. It is explained by the rule
that law is rather than explaining what is meant by the law. Since the said
case involved interpretation of a statue this is the rule that is generally
applied by the court first before the application of any other rules.
7
The
words of the statute under the literal rule are given their ordinary, plain and
literal meaning.
8
The application of the literal requires that the law be read
word by word and that there should not be any diversion from its actual
meaning.
9
This is what was done by Tracy J. in the given case, the
requirements of the item for a valid visa application were read word by
word and any deviation from the requirement was opined to make the
application an invalid application.

Managing Workplace Diversity:561203

Question:

On successful completion of this unit, students wi ll be able to: 1. Demonstrate a clear un derstanding of the r ole cultural difference plays in a wor kforce; 2. Based on evidence, dev elop a clear workforce plan to ca ter for cultural difference; 3. Clearly identify the respecti ve oppor tunities and cha llenges various staff and teams ma y bring; Answer: Diversity refers to the presence of differences between people in the organization based on age, race, personality, tenure, education, religion, gender and more. Diversity is important in the workplace as it helps in building great reputation for the company. The aim of this paper is to develop a clear understanding and plan to cater for the cultural differences (Peretz, Levi and Fried 2015). The opportunities and challenges faced by the employees are clearly stated. Cultural diversity refers to the group of individuals belonging to different societies or cultures. Cultural diversity includes variances in language, race, religion, ethnicity and others (Boehm and Dwertmann 2014). This paper aims at identifying and reflecting on the benefits and challenges of cultural diversity in the modern organization. The benefits such as developing a competitive workforce, increasing efficiency, innovation and productivity are identified. Further, the challenges such as team communication and employee motivation are determined. These challenges shall be transformed into opportunities for value creation. The paper also provides recommendations following which the organizations can maximize value creation. Further, a business case is formulated for the chosen organization. The organizational factors as suitable for the organization are examined.

Analysing the big picture environment, the two business challenges where cultural diversity might become influential are poor team communication and low employee motivation. In the business world, competition is the most common challenge faced by the organizations. Cultural diversity is important as it helps the business in being more profitable and competitive (Boekhorst 2014). Diversity does not mean simply having a heterogeneous workforce but is s also about developing new products, services and business concepts. The managers realize the need of diversity in the workplace to conceive new ideas and opinions. This can add to the competitive advantage of the business. However, the concept of cultural diversity may be a failure as it brings significant challenges in terms of team communication. Professional communication is misinterpreted and difficult to understand due to different language and culture. The communication style in the Western cultures is less discrete when they present their message (Mor-Barak 2013). Therefore, the communication between a Westerner and non-Westerner can cause confusion in the workplace. Although the diverse cultures add to the cohesiveness of the organization, but the perception causing confusion may hamper the productivity. Accents and fluency is an obvious challenge in a diverse workplace. Although English is the standard language across the globe, but the people not speaking English may go unnoticed and unappreciated. The employees may become less motivated as a team player and the organization may seem to have a fail in profitability (Brunow and Blien 2014).

Business Model Development:574741

Question:

Describe about the Business Model Development.

Answer:

1.0 Introduction

Skill enables an individual to enhance their individuality. Attachment of the concept of “trade” in the skills reflects utilization of the individuals for the commercial purposes. This is the end of his personal space. Ineffective utilization of the possessed skills makes the individuals inactive, which stains the intellectual applications (Kindström and Kowalkowski 2014). This report adds a digital tone to the innate skills, possessed by the individuals from their infant stage. The “digitalization” proposed in the earlier sentence adds a modern touch to the lives of the individuals. Speculating the concept of “skills” from the modern perspective, humans hardly find time to make judicious utilization of the possessed knowledge. This is in reference to the drab, monotony that they undergo for attaining a meaningful existence. Incapability in this direction compels the individuals to encounter losses in their lives, which detaches them from their personal as well as professional development (Armstrong and Taylor 2014). In this perspective, the startup company, Skill Trader would be a relief for the public domain in terms of proper utilization of the possessed skills, expertise and knowledge.

Managers have a responsibility to perform well in a haphazard situation. A good manager has a responsibility to master five basic functions: i.e.: Planning, organizing, Staffing, leading and controlling. Planning is the process of looking into the future perspective and preparing oneself to manage the circumstance. It is one of the indispensable qualities that need to be performed in order to gain effective results.  Planning thus is an essential process that helps in making rationale about the future (Bovée and Thill, 2015; McDonald and Wilson, 2016).  It is one of the creative processes that intend to bridge the gap between the businesses. Systematic planning is considered as important prospective resources in an organization to manage the organization.  Planning in an organization is among the most important and primary function.
