The For Undocumented Migrants’ Rights in Central Europe project focuses on monitoring the implementation and enforcement of provisions of the Directive 2009/52/EC (providing for minimum standards on sanctions and measures against employers of illegally staying third-country nationals). The project is funded by the European Programme for Integration and Migration- EPIM in Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary between 1st September 2012 and 31st December 2014.
The lead partner of the project is Association for Legal Intervention (SIP) – Poland
The NGO partners simultaneously conduct research on techniques of directive implementation, the current legal framework and its compliance with EU law. Free legal assistance is also provided to undocumented migrant workers and migrants threatened with irregularity due to the labour market restrictions with the ultimate goal of bringing strategic cases to courts and administrative bodies.
The data gained through this work will be summarised and relevant recommendations shall be communicated to the relevant national and EU authorities, in the hope that the experience of Central Europe is being taken into consideration in future amendments to EU law.
It is hoped that this project will lead to the creation of a network of NGOs from the Central European region that is dedicated to the exchange of experiences and good practices.
