There is a new system of employment for all foreign workers who want to work caregiver Israel. Under the new system, each caregiver Israel and his employer must register with one of the Licensed Recruitment Agencies duly authorized by the Israeli Government. To register, the caregiver Israel and his employer must personally visit one of the licensed recruitment agencies in Israel and fill out a registration application and return the filled up application form back to the agency for proper filing.
After filing the application for registration, the authorized recruitment agency must give the caregiver Israel applicant and his employer each a Certificate of Placement which states that both have registered with the agency. The Certificate of Placement must show clearly the following details:
- The date of registration.
- The name and address including the contact number of the agency.
- The address and ID Number of the employer.
- The name and passport number of the caregiver Israel applicant.
It is very important that the caregiver Israel applicant save the Certificate of Placement received from the Agency because it will provide evidence that the caregiver Israel applicant have been legally registered according to the new system of employment in Israel. With regards to the extension of working visa of the caregiver Israel worker, it will only be extended only after the caregiver Israel worker and his employer have registered with an authorized recruitment agency.
The agency may not charge the caregiver Israel or the employer any amount for their registration or for the issuance of the certificate of placement. But it may charge the employer for the extra services it may provide like quarterly visits, problem solving, assistance with medical insurance for the caregiver Israel worker, social security, and assistance with visa application and permits.
Before the caregiver Israel applicant can start employment, the recruitment agency whom the caregiver and the employer have registered, must notify the Migration Authority in the Ministry of the Interior about the details of the registration of the caregiver Israel applicant and his employer. This process is for verifying the details in their registration. If there is no problem, the Migration Authority will notify the agency within 7 days if the caregiver Israel applicant is authorized to work in Israel for the employer. If the Employment is turned down by the Authority, the Agency will explain to the Caregiver Israel applicant the reason for the rejection, furnish the Caregiver with a copy of the rejection notice, and inform him of the need to stop the employment and/or leave the country.
If the caregiver Israel worker decides to change employers, he must inform the Agency where he registered, which in turn will notify the Migration Authority of the change and issue a new Certificate of Placement. If the Caregiver is laid off or becomes unemployed he must notify the Agency, which must assist him in looking for a new employment.
