This webinar aims to cut through the confusion and speculation relating to Brexit and immigration issues.
The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union continues to be a work in progress, making it challenging for individuals and businesses to keep abreast of frequent changes and their implications in the face of proposed new policy and government announcements.
The existing system continues to cause concern both for those in the United Kingdom currently, and those intending to transfer to work here; this webinar will highlight the key points for employers in order to provide employees with the guidance and support they need today.
Given the strategic importance to business of maintaining and refreshing the talent pool, it will also examine the government’s proposed far-reaching rethink on immigration and what this will mean for workforce planning and strategy. It will look at the impact of the proposals on EU nationals as well as those from outside the European who will be coming to the United Kingdom to work.
The webinar will consider the current rules and obligations incumbent on employers and employees and what they need to consider, both if there is a new agreement with the European Union or in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
