CGi reaction to permit rules being relaxed for overseas workers

Following the news that the States has relaxed immigration requirements for overseas workers to make it easier for businesses to hire people, we have issued a response:

‘WE are pleased that finally Deputy Prow and Home Affairs have acknowledged and are listening to the issues that the CGi and its members are raising.

This is, though, only the first of many steps that Home Affairs must take in order to properly support employers, otherwise the Island faces a continuous ‘skills drain’, leaving businesses chronically short of trained and experienced staff.

A meeting is now being scheduled for mid-January with Home Affairs, at which a delegation of CGi firms and committee members will further discuss ongoing concerns with the legislation.’
