Switzerland –Transitional Work Permit Restrictions on EU-8 and EU-17 Nationals Approved

Switzerland –Transitional Work Permit Restriction...

KPMG in Switzerland reports that the Federal Council has decided not only to adhere for another year to the work permit restrictions on EU-8 nationals as already invoked per May 2012, but also to apply such restrictions to EU-17 nationals for a one-year term. The Federal Council recently announced that it will again invoke the safeguard clause (“Ventilklausel”) which allows Switzerland, if certain immigration numbers are reached, to unilaterally re-introduce quotas for persons from the EU-8 countries and EU-17 countries up until May 31, 2014.
