Synthesis Report “Illegal Employment of Third-Country Nationals in the EU”

The following Synthesis Report presents a comparative overview of the main findings of the EMN Focussed Study Illegal Employment of Third-Country Nationals in the EU based on National Reports from twenty-three Member States. The aim of this Focussed Study is to map and analyse the measures in place at Member States level to fight the illegal employment of third-country nationals, possible problematic areas and obstacles in this field and strategies and good practices to overcome them. The Study examines each stage of the illegal employment policy ‘cycle’ for third-country nationals:

  • preventive measures and incentives for employers and employees;
  • identification of illegal employment of third-country nationals;
  • sanctions for employers;
  • outcomes for employees.
