About this event

Following Brexit, the rules for staff entering the UK are changing.  Get up to date so you can find the talent you need, efficiently and legally.

Recruiting from overseas can solve many problems for organisations – but also create new ones.

Recruiting workers who claim to have the right to work in the UK – but do not – can cause major legal issues for employers.

Obtaining work permits for your employees; checking they have a legal right to work; dealing with changing regulations. How to stay up-to-date?

This workshop is designed to give you essential, up-to-date information about the current workings of the immigration rules and will help you keep your company compliant.

You will understand the raft of immigration rules; verify a non-UK candidate’s immigration status; review your policies and procedures to ensure your organisation is working within the law. In addition, you will learn what to look for when checking identity documents and qualifications to avoid fraudulent applications, ensuring that all your current employees are working legally.

This workshop will cover:

  • Operation of Immigration Control
  • Who can work in the UK?
  • EU and Non EU work schemes
  • Points Based System – PBS
  • Checking documents

Who’s it for?

  • Any recruiter who hires non UK nationals
  • HR professionals with recruitment responsibilities
  • Legal and compliance professionals
  • Business owners
