Content
A main objective of the labor migration policy was, is and remains the protection of the labor market and the prevention and combating of illegal employment. Regular labor migrants are obliged to have a work permit and it is important to strengthen their position by combating poor working conditions, underpayment, illegality and displacement on the labor market. This protection is also essential for our society. It can be financially beneficial for companies to evade labor laws. The revision of the Wav contains two measures to strengthen the position of the migrant worker/employee, namely the monthly cashless payment of the wages and the optional ground for rejection if an employer has no economic activities. In addition, there are a number of procedural and technical changes. The amendments are intended to provide an arrangement for a flexible and future-proof policy, thereby creating clarity and certainty. The position of employees will also be strengthened and changes will be made to combat unfair competition. First of all, this book contains a general explanation based on parliamentary history. Since this is an amending act, the original text of the act has been included first. The text of the amendment was then included, accompanied by an article-by-article explanation derived from parliamentary history, after which the integral (new) legislative text was included.

20  See Parliamentary Papers II 2020/21, 35 680, no. 20. (https://zoek.officielebekendmakingen.nl/kst-35680-20.html)  This amendment actually deserves the qualification of being a so-called 'destructive amendment' and should therefore be declared inadmissible. The House of Representatives can declare an amendment 'inadmissible' on the basis of Article 97 of the Rules of Procedure. The amendment must then have an effect 'opposite to that of the bill, or if there is no direct connection between the subject matter of the amendment and that of the bill.' The amendment will then not be considered.

35    Amendment of the Decree implementing the Foreign Nationals Employment Act in connection with the admission of highly skilled migrants (Stb. 2004, 481); Government response to the SER recommendation on labor migration (Parliamentary Papers II 2014/2015, 29 861, no. 38);  (https://zoek.officielebekendmakingen.nl/kst-29861-38);.html ) Chamber steak with policy response to report Attractiveness of the Netherlands for highly skilled migrants (Parliamentary Papers 2018/2019, 30 573, no. 171).

41    It should be noted that by accepting an amendment (Parliamentary Papers II 2020/21, 35 680, no. 20)  (https://zoek.officielebekendmakingen.nl/kst-35680-20).html) has lost meaning.

43    The definition of a single permit as included in Article 1, under h, of the Wav and Article 1 Vw 2000 is broadly derived from the definition in Directive 2011 /98/EU, but adapted to Dutch practice (see also Parliamentary Papers II 2013/14, 33 749, no. 3). (https://zoek.officielebekendmakingen.nl/kst-33749-3.html)  Knowledge migrants, researchers and European blue card holders fall outside the scope of the definition of a single permit, because exemptions from the work permit requirement apply to these groups on the basis of the BuWav and therefore – in accordance with Directive 2011 /98/EU – there is already one permit for residence and work.

45    A limitation in working hours has been chosen to prevent asylum seekers from building up rights to unemployment benefits. A complex situation would arise if an asylum application is rejected and the asylum seeker is obliged to leave, but is still entitled to unemployment benefits (Stb. 2008, 38).
