As employment law advisers we are seeing an increase in concerns from our clients about the immigration status of their employees. This is particularly the case given the current uncertainty around the Government’s deal, no deal or no Brexit.
Immigration Law is a very specialist area and not something that we as employment lawyers are able to advise on. However, we have partnered with a specialist Immigration Law practice, Latitude Law, who have kindly created a webinar which explains the impact Brexit is likely to have on businesses and how this will affect an EU National’s right to work in the UK from 29th March 2019.
We have extended the access to this webinar to clients of QCS and it can be accessed by clicking on the following link:

The content of the webinar is correct at the time of recording
It is worth noting that the webinar refers to there is ‘no statutory requirement to undertake ‘Right to Work Checks’ generally not just in relation to Brexit, the checks themselves just ensure that employers have a statutory excuse if it subsequently turns out that an individual does not have a right to work in the UK. However, the advice is that all employers should definitely be doing them.
