Prime Minister Theresa May has lost the vote on her Brexit deal by an unprecedented majority, but employers should continue planning for restricted immigration from January 2021 and support affected employees to understand what Brexit means for them, whatever the outcome.
This latest development follows publication of the UK government’s long-awaited Immigration White Paper, including proposals for new rules to be phased in from 2021. The government has also indicated that a wider public test phase for the EU Settlement Scheme will be open from 21 January 2019. What does this mean for your business and what should you be doing now to support your existing affected employees and plan for your future workforce?
Please join us for next week’s webinar, where we will take you through what you need to know and explain any practical measures that you should take. Our speakers will include Business Immigration Practice partners Annabel Mace and Supinder Sian, as well as James Wharton, senior advisor in our European Public Policy Practice and a former MP, who will provide a unique insight on the political aspects of Brexit.
The webinar will cover:
- The key Immigration White Paper proposals and how to prepare for the government’s “programme of engagement” for shaping future rules and processes
- Practical tips for your EU employees on applying for pre-settled or settled status
- An update on the latest Brexit developments and the impact on immigration policy
