Immigration firm welcomes permits proposals

A company that provides immigration services to companies has welcomed planned new legislation on employment permits but has also urged companies employing foreign workers to make sure that they are fully compliant with the new system.

Fragomen Ireland noted that the Employment Permits Bill would bring about changes in how businesses could attract and employ global talent.

It added that understanding these changes was key to avoiding costly fines and other penalties that might be triggered by non-compliance.


Stephen McCrea (senior immigration manager, Fragomen Ireland) said that the proposals would update several key areas and bring multiple employment regulations into one comprehensive bill.

“It means the Government will be in a place to effectively and quickly respond to changes in the labour market without the need to pass primary legislation to do so,” he stated.

The firm yesterday (29 May) held an event at the Dublin Chamber aimed at increasing awareness of the proposed changes.
