BERMUDA TIGHTENS UP ON WORK PERMITS

Bermuda has extended its moratorium on new work permits for a further three months to the end of July.

It now included residential cleaners among the 42 categories for which new work permits are suspended and another 12 areas described as Closed Category Jobs.

The government said this was due to the “due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic in Bermuda and its impact on persons unable to work.”

Bermuda’s Minister of Labour, Jason Hayward, said: “During this period when restrictions have been re-implemented to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we recognize that the employment situation for many has worsened. Accordingly, it is important to continue with strong measures to encourage the hiring of Bermudians in the workforce.”
