Abstract: - The employment gap – the difference in rates of employment – between EU nationals and immigrants (third country nationals) varies widely across Member States. - In Member States that are long-standing destination countries for immigrants and have reached the target of 75% employment rate for their citizens, the gap is large and not closing over time. The EU guidelines for the employment policies of the Member States should prioritise this issue. - Key factors in determining employment prospects for immigrants are education, country of origin and length of residence. - As a viable option, Member States should adopt policy measures for recognition of foreign qualifications and early identification of immigrants’ skills as supported by the 'New Skills Agenda for Europe’.
