Brexit 2021, Employee Relations
Recent events feel like they have overtaken the UK’s withdrawal from the EU; but as the advent countdown starts for Christmas today, so does the countdown to Brexit for the January 2021.
if you are an employer, have you missed the UK’s new immigration system?
Here’s what you need to know;
Sponsor Licence’s; Even though there maybe a change in the number of sponsored workers coming to the UK, you need to familiarise yourself with the new rules and the costs involved
Skilled worker route; Bringing a skilled worker into the UK for work has a minimum earnings threshold attached to it.
No low skilled worker route; There is currently no route for low skilled migration into the UK. This means that those relying on low skilled labour from Europe such as retail, construction and care sectors could struggle.
Graduates; With a leave to remain for 2 years following graduation in the UK in 2021, this could provide real help for hard hit sectors as grads.
Did you know that proving Right to Work in the UK started to be checked in 2008; meaning employees needed to prove their residence by the production of the relevant paperwork?
