Asylum Seekers in Ireland to potentially gain work rights

Posted in Latest News, Events

The Irish government has announced it may opt into a European Union (EU) directive that allows asylum seekers work rights in the country should their application be pending for at least nine months.

This move follows the Irish Supreme Court ruling against the ban on work rights for asylum seekers. As there was no time limit set by which asylum applications must be finalised by, the Irish Supreme Court found the restriction an outright and complete ban on the right to work.  

Should the Irish government continue with the EU opt-in, they would be allowed to maintain control over the conditions to be set under which the work authority for the asylum seekers can then be provided.

However, the decision is not considered final as both houses of the Oireachtas (Ireland’s legislature) will still need to approve the opt-in for it to receive the go ahead. The EU will also need to confirm Ireland’s participation in the directive.
