A seminar focused on (1) the steps that employers can take to protect their organisation from the risk of illegal working; and (2) the issues faced by employers employing or seeking to employ EU nationals in a Brexit-changing landscape. The event is aimed at business owners, owner-managers of businesses across all sectors, HR professionals and anyone who works in the HR sector in the Black Country.
UK employers have to navigate a hostile, complex and ever-changing landscape of immigration rules in the day to day management of their employment and recruitment arrangements. The consequences of getting it wrong are costly, time consuming and bad for reputation. It is therefore crucial that employers understand their obligations to prevent illegal working within their organisations.
Business immigration issues often give rise to employment law issues and vice versa and it is important to ensure that a business is protected on both fronts.
This keynote seminar will highlight the issues faced by businesses employing or seeking to employ non-UK workers now, and in a post-Brexit world.
Specialists from Higgs’ Business Immigration team will give an overview of the current employment landscape and how that may change over the coming months and years. Their expert advice will provide peace of mind to all those who employ one of the region’s 463,000 strong workforce.
Brexit potentially represents a set of unique challenges to the region’s business community in particular those who employ non UK nationals. We therefore want to help businesses not only meet those challenges but be better equipped to take advantage of the opportunities it offers so that they can continue to go on making the Black Country one of the most vibrant business communities in the UK.
