The Austrian National Council has supported the update of employment rules for refugees from Ukraine. They relate to German language proficiency and checks. This is reported by APA.


It is noted that according to the decision of the Austrian parliament, holders of a displaced person card (Blue Card) will be able to get any job in Austria without prior permission and will not have to undergo a preliminary check of wages and working conditions.


In addition, employment for seasonal workers has been simplified - they will only need to prove their German language skills at the A1 level, not A2, as it was before.


In particular, for key employees, skilled workers in shortage professions, and startup founders, knowledge of French, Spanish, Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian at the B1 level will be taken into account.


According to the Austrian State Secretary for Tourism Susanne Kraus-Winkler, the decision of the Austrian National Council will give impetus to overcoming the shortage of skilled workers.
