Labour & Immigration Marketplace Analysis
An increase in corporate immigration activity has led to stricter rules regarding international work permits – particularly within the energy sector. Although the general consensus conveys a thriving marketplace, lawyers are dealing with an increased workload including sanctions for non-compliance matters, applications for salary increases and cases concerning the threat of strike action from large corporations and government firms.
