Program to allow in Ukranian workers isn't enough for employers

The Czech government's attempts to increase the number of Ukranians allowed into the country to work isn't having the intended impact because of bureaucratic hurdles. The government approved a new program called the Ukraine Regime that simplified the process for up to 20,000 Ukranians per year to arrange working papers in the Czech Republic. But the system is unable to process even close to that amount as it's currently set up. "It's definitely an improvement from before," says Michaela Machariková from the Top People agency in an interview with Hospodářské noviny. "Before, the usual route without using the new system was extremely difficult and the usual waiting time for an employee was a year or 18 months. The fact that it's simpler today doesn't mean that everything's great. It's still a very difficult process for the company. Now the waiting period has shortened to five to six months." Major Czech employers are lobbying to get the number of Ukranians allowed into the country for work increased to 40,000 per year.
