What is the change? Slovakia has adopted two pieces of legislation that change immigration rules and procedures for employers and non-EU nationals seeking work authorization. The changes affect the publication of the shortage occupation list, the process for reporting vacancies, document legalization requirements, penalties for illegal work, filing time frames, housing requirements, processing times and the validity of residence permits.
Key points: The two laws—Act No. 5/2004 on Employment Service and Act No. 404/2011 on Stay of Foreign Nationals—are summarized below.
Analysis & Comments: Employers are encouraged to review internal procedures in light of the new legislation. Penalties have increased in some instances, and companies will be scrutinized for illegal work violations for a longer period of time. The changes are broadly beneficial to business, however, and will improve processing times in some cases, particularly for jobs at Technological Centers. Authorities are expected to publish the first list of Technological Centers later this month.
