    View Speakers / Event

    A recording of this webinar is now available to view online.

    UK employers with non-EU employees are grappling with the immigration-related impact of COVID-19 lockdown measures and travel restrictions.

    To guide you through the legal, practical and reputational impact of these fast-moving developments, we invite you to register for a webinar on Wednesday 8 April at 11 a.m. Our speakers will include Business Immigration partners, Annabel Mace and Supinder Sian, who will provide up-to-the minute insight on the latest Home Office guidance and issues such as:

    • What if we have an employee whose visa is expiring soon?
    • Can those who would usually have to leave the UK to switch visas apply from within the UK instead?
    • What about employees with UK visas who are stuck abroad?
    • What are our compliance obligations with regard to COVID-19-related absences?
    • Can we delay the work start date for a newly sponsored employee?
    • What about salary reductions for furloughed employees?
    • Can we furlough UK employees on overseas assignments?
    • How quickly do sponsored employees who are made redundant have to leave the UK?
    • How do we carry out right-to-work checks if we cannot see original documents?
    • What if an employee loses the right to work whilst absent because of COVID-19?

    There will also be an opportunity to ask Annabel and Supinder questions throughout the session.
