The developer behind Hearts of Iron is trying to prevent the deportation

Vachon Pugh, Paradox’s Producer for Hearts of Iron IV, risks deportation by the Swedish government over a former employer’s error. Pugh had applied for a work permit renewal, and was asked for additional documentation by The Migration Office. She later received a letter informing her that her work permit extension had been denied and that she had exactly four weeks to leave Sweden.

Sweden revised its immigration laws in 2015 to avoid workers’ exploitation, but the new laws involved requirements for payment of social security and pension insurance. Pugh’s employer before Paradox had not paid these fees during her trial period in that company, as reported by The Local.

Pugh moved to Sweden from Florida in 2018 and has been employed by two different companies while in abroad before joining Paradox. Her second employer failed to pay out all workplace and pension insurances during her trial period there. Swedish migrations laws had been changed in 2015 so those payments needed to be made during her trial working period meaning the “conditions for [her] previous work permit were not met,” according to a letter sent to her by the Swedish Migration Agency.

Pugh is currently appealing the decision in Migration Court with support from Paradox. “It’s a personal tragedy, and it’s a big loss for us,” Paradox CEO Ebba Ljungerud said in an interview. “Vachon develops one of our most popular games. It’s a difficult game to develop, and it’s a very hard role to find senior people for. We as an employer are also a victim of this. Even if we’re not at fault, and Vachon is not at fault, it still affects us.”

Paradox, meanwhile, has hired a lawyer to appeal the Migration’s Court decision and keep Pugh in the country. “It’s a personal tragedy, and it’s a big loss for us,” said Paradox’s CEO Ebba Ljungerud. “Vachon develops one of our most popular games. It’s a difficult game to develop, and it’s a very hard role to find senior people for. We as an employer are also a victim of this.
