IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Ireland has made changes and clarifications to its Highly Skilled Eligible Occupations (HSEOL) and Ineligible Categories of Employment (ICEL) lists that will benefit employers and non-EEA accountants, legal and human resources professionals and technical support specialists.
What does the change mean? Affected accountants, legal and HR professionals and technical support specialists will have an easier time obtaining work authorization in Ireland, though they must meet all relevant criteria before being eligible for Employment Permits.
Background: Ireland’s Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation (DJEI) announced earlier this year that it would accept submissions from stakeholders in its recently completed review of the HSEOL and ICEL. As a result of direct consultation with BAL Global, DJEI will make changes or clarifications that will help employers and non-EEA workers in affected occupations. Among the key changes and clarifications:
The changes will take effect Aug. 2. Ireland will undertake another review of the HSEOL and ICEL this fall.
BAL Analysis: The changes and clarifications are welcome news to employers and non-EEA accountants, legal and HR professionals and technical support specialists who will be affected. BAL Global invites clients to work with BAL professionals by providing any suggestions or feedback on the HSEOL and ICEL for the review Ireland is expected to complete this fall.
