House: Guest workers must meet standards
Prospective guest workers in certain categories must satisfy minimum qualifications before a work permit application will be considered, according to home affairs minister Patricia Gordon-Pamplin.
The qualifications apply to welders, automotive services, electricians and landscape gardeners.
Current work permit holders are required to register with the Department of Workforce Development by March 31, and those unable to successfully complete the process will not have their permits renewed.
For health and safety reasons, prospective guest workers are also required to demonstrate a good level of proficiency in the English language, MPs were told at the House of Assembly today.
