Event Details

Arrive at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start.  

Post- Brexit business decisions on hiring still have to be made; but what if you employ EU nationals and plan to do so in the future?  What about non-EU hires?  And what about recent changes to the legal test if you get it wrong? 

Find out what the law is and what it is likely to be in the future to help you with your hiring decisions with our experienced business immigration and employment lawyers.

Once you have decided to employ a Foreign National find out ways to support their arrival and ensure that they stay with your company.
