Personally i think without a reference you will be taking a fuge risk.
Bigger risk than loosing your job, is your boss really going to sack you, and if they are then sod them and get another job.
If you word it like we are thinking, takes 3-5 years blah, blah, blah, then its not short term.
Your boss will probably show some interest in it and will be more than happy to help out.
Living In Adelaide Since Jan 2012 And Loving It
Applied for 176 visa 23/03/2011 C/O 19/04/2011. Meds done 18/05/2011 Police Checks sent 16/05/2011. Visa Granted 26/05/2011. Flights Booked 12/01/2012.
I am glad you seen that as that was my POINT I knew someone would comment back just so I could highlight my point
We are all different and what suits one does not suit another,
That reply is in no way rude, To the point but not rude.
This is a faceless forum and in no should people be taking comments to heart or personally.
My employer would let me go and it would be hard for me to get another job on the same salary and I am heavily relying on it to save money up.
If you read Gollywoblers point he has given really good advice ( he is a legal eagle after all).
I know of people who have not had to get references and was wanting to know advice on that.
Maybe I worded my question wrong.
I'm sure your situation is different but surely your employer can't sack you for requesting a reference, if you do need to ask why don't you say it's for personal financial purposes like a mortgage or something, they need never know the real reason until you hand in your notice.
I got a reference from my boss just before I applied and basically wrote it myself (my boss was very trusting) but I didn't specify whole what the referece was for so I can still use it for jobs in the future. Just a thought.
Best of luck x
Great response, It seems so obvious now you have said it but just did not think of saying it was a financial matter.
No worries we have to do what we can to ensure that we get our visa's.
I don't know if this helps at all - I got a statement written by my last employer, which still counts for the '12 months within the last 24 months' (I have only worked at my current school since Sept 2010), and sent that for SS. For my 176 I am going to send the same letter from the old school, and my contract from my new school along with 11 months of payslips (since I worked there until current). The contract states my main duties, my payscale point and annual amount, that it's full time and perm. etc etc.
I also do not want to tell my employer - I am not worried about getting the sack (its not easy to sack a teacher after all just like that) but I am worried about my vindictive old bag of a headteacher making my life a living hell - my school is sh*te enough without any more goings on, I could be put on capabilities (you don't want to know) and have all sorts of hell to go through, and I'm sure that my head would as she is just an evil bi*ch basically.
If DIAC do contact them, obviously it will all come out I'm sure, but seeing as most people don't get contacted hopefully this won't be an issue - and if it is, then we'll cross that bridge when we get to it....
Good luck :)
