Vinge authorised by the Swedish Migration Board

November 06, 2014

The authorisation entails that Vinge can assist both the employer and employer to expedite and simplify the application procedure relating to the grant of a work permit. In light of the Migration Board’s rather protracted lead times, it constitutes a significant advantage for many employers to know when the work permit will be issued so that the employee concerned can start work.

In 2014, the Migration Board granted Vinge a special authorisation which reduces the lead times for employer applications for the issuance of work permits for their employees.

The major advantage of the authorisation is that once a complete application has been submitted to the Migration Board, a decision may be rendered in respect thereof within as short a period as one week.

Vinge’s employment and benefits practice group is well acquainted with the regulatory framework governing work permits and the specific requirements relating to, e.g. insurance which the Migration Board may impose as a condition for the grant of a work permit.

The prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings

On Tuesday 21 December, the EU Court of Justice delivered its long-awaited judgment in the Bank Melli Iran case (Case C-124/20) on the interpretation of the EU Blocking Statute regarding compliance with third country sanctions. According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
