Free Movement of Required Labour Act 2014



  • FREE MOVEMENT OF REQUIRED LABOUR ACT

    Proposed by Os Corelia :: Passed (4-3), March 9th, 2014 :: Unamended


    PREAMBLE

    This Act aims to provide the easing of visa restrictions for workers, by a multi-lateral agreement, who have skills that have over-subscribed employment rates in one EU nation but are required in another EU nation.


    SECTION I. FREE MOVEMENT OF REQUIRED LABOUR

    1. This Act will allow free movement and deregulated residence restrictions to labourers whose skills are required by an EU nation of which an EU citizen is not a national of.

    2. This Act will also allow free passage for spouses and dependants of the skilled labourer.

    3. This Act will allow for a distribution of skill sets where required in an attempt to match the skill set of the unemployed or employed yet aspirational labourers to jobs which enable use of these skills.


    SECTION II. THE LABOUR EXCHANGE

    1. To ensure the regulation or employment and the incapacity of exploitation the EU will establish a regulatory body named The Labour Exchange with whom any member state can register a labour shortage that they intend to be filled with immigrant labour. The exchange will be run by the office of the Commissioner of Internal Affairs who will preside over its running.

    2. When a member state registers a labour shortage in a certain line of work, companies in both the public and private sectors may also register with the Labour Exchange.

    3. All labourers seeking employment through the exchange will be granted the same employment benefits and rights as a labourer of the nations they are moving to, ensuring that companies cannot use this scheme to employ workers at an undercutting wage.

    4. As a public service the Labour Exchange will create a web based resource to enquire to a database of vacancies with registered employers. Applications will be able to be made through this website with an electronic standardised form. The website will also facilitate video interviews in the case of interview candidates being unable to attend in person meetings due to distance and inability to raise expenses.


    SECTION III. IMPLEMENTATION

    1. Once registered with the Labour Exchange employers will have the right to accept labourers in the line of work for which there is a declared shortage from other EU countries without visa documents. Borders shall be presented with a proof of employment letter as right of entry for labourer and spouse/dependants upon first movement. For trips between origin state and employer state after this initial they will have a signifier of residence as concurrent with individual state law.

    2. All nations have the right to refuse labourers with detailed or pending criminal convictions or those deemed as a potential threat to national security as decided upon by the nation within which employment is sought.

    3. If any party detailed within the course of this Act does not fulfil their legislative requirements as listed in this Act they will be sanctioned through the European Court of Justice.

    4. Member States will retain full ownership of their own borders as this Act is not an attempt to circumvent sovereignty. The Labour Exchange will not force immigrants upon a country and this is not the intention of this service.
