Issues covered:

This month's topic focusses on work permits, which, due to the improvement in Ireland's economy, has become a more prevalent issue in the last number of years.An employer who employs an employee without a valid employment permit is guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine of up to €250,000 and/or 10 years' imprisonment.

Since our last checklist was issued, the whole area has undergone an update, to include many more types of work permit that may be available, for instance the Critical Skills Employment Permit, the Internship Employment Permit, which give many employers the opportunity to hire candidates who may otherwise have missed an opportunity to visit/work in Ireland.
