Final Call for Work Permit Holder Survey Respondents

Jun 06, 2023

The Work Permit Holder Review Panel (the Panel) is in the final stage of gathering evidence for its review into the welfare of work permit holders in Jersey. The Panel calls on any remaining work permit holders wishing to complete the online (anonymous) survey, to do so by 5pm on Friday 09 June.

The aim of the survey is to gather evidence from work permit holders, specifically focussing on:  

•    the process of obtaining a Jersey work permit 

•    the obligations that employers have towards work permit holders and how well these are fulfilled and communicated 

•    financial obligations and access to benefits and healthcare 

•    the general experiences of work permit holders. 

The scope of the survey spans various sectors and communities and is an important part of the evidence gathering stage of this review. The Panel is keen to see survey responses which reflect the broad range of those who are affected by the Work Permit Policy.  

Chair of the Panel, Deputy Beatriz Porée, explained: ‘It’s a challenge to gather the breadth of evidence needed to make this review as encompassing and thorough as possible. The Panel is working hard with stakeholders, community groups and individuals across the Island. We encourage employees and employers alike to help us spread the word and urge work permit holders to fill in the survey.’ 

The survey is anonymous; the Panel may refer to quotes gathered through the open questions of the survey, but they will not be attributed to an identifiable individual. 

The survey can be accessed online through the links below and is available in the following languages:
