New work law changes all the rules
Saturday 12th January 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
PROPOSALS for the most far-reaching reform for a generation of immigration controls through the regulation of work and housing have finally been published.
After years of debate and delay, the draft Control of Housing and Work Regulations were published yesterday and should be debated by the States on 5 March. If agreed, they will come into force in April.
Not only do they require all Islanders who want to get a job or move home to produce a registration card proving their residential status, the regulations also aim to improve the rights of unqualified Islanders.
