IMPACT – MEDIUM
The Irish government has organized a task force to address a May Supreme Court ruling that said Ireland cannot impose an absolute ban on providing work authorization to asylum seekers.
Background: The case involved a Burmese man who sued to overturn the ban while his asylum application was under consideration. The Supreme Court sided with him in a 7-0 ruling, reasoning that because there is no limit on how long authorities can take with asylum applications, the restriction amounted to a complete ban on the right to seek work, violating Ireland’s constitution.
BAL Analysis: Officials are working now to come up with a fix to their current laws that would comply with the ruling, which has the potential to significantly expand work opportunities for asylum seekers. BAL will continue to follow the matter and alert clients to important developments.
