Crossing the border for work? Or working from home?
Posted On: 17 Jan 2024
The Border People project is working with a team of researchers commissioned by the Labour Employment Economic Forum to analyse the current state of the island-wide labour market and consider factors operating as barriers to the labour market. An estimated 18,000 workers and 5,200 students cross the border every day to work or study.
The research will specifically focus on taxation, social security, pensions, skills, qualifications, mobility of workers, collective bargaining and trade union coverage and hybrid working.
LEEF is keen to understand the challenges encountered by workers and employers and identify solutions where possible. The research will be a helpful tool for the development of policies, regulations and legislation that reflect the needs of workers and employers in the region.
The survey is anonymous and takes less than five minutes to complete at bit.ly/3tYqYAg.
