Jersey Mulls Residential Contracts for Migrant Workers

Tax-news.com

20 August 1999


Worried that current policies are not controlling population growth, Jersey is considering a new form of contract which would commit immigrant and migratory workers to a set period of stay in a given employment and in stated accommodation. On 13 September the States' Policy and Resources Committee will meet with 15 organisations who are concerned that existing laws are ineffective. Robert Weston, a hotelier and a driving force over the issue hopes that the majority of organisations participating will reach agreement on an 'alternative but credible' immigration policy. Mr Weston thinks that this will stop the finance industry poaching staff from other sectors, and will stabilise salaries. He does not consider that such a contract would contravene the human rights conventions by which Jersey will soon be bound.
