Event description

Description

Future skills-based immigration system white paper consultation


The government’s white paper on a future post-Brexit immigration policy looks set to have a dramatic impact on employers and especially low-skilled workers if implemented.

  • What would the impact of a 30k minimum salary threshold be on your organisation?

  • How can the government mitigate the cost and administrative burden of a future post-Brexit immigration policy?

  • How are you going to respond if you are unable to recruit non-UK nationals in the same numbers as before?

  • How have you been responding to the fall in EU net migration since the Leave vote so far?

The CIPD would like to gather your feedback on the above questions and more, to help inform its response to the consultation on the UK’s future skills-based immigration system white paper for EU and non-EU citizens alike.

Access the UK’s future skills-based immigration system white paper.

Our roundtable is particularly aimed at Immigration specialists and senior HR professionals. Places are limited however so we encourage you to book only if you intend to participate.

We are delighted to welcome:


  • Gerwyn Davies, (Public Policy Advisor CIPD).
    Gerwyn will lead this roundtable discussion.

  • Heather Rolfe (National Institute of Economic and Social Research)
    Heather's immigration research focuses on employers’ use of migrant labour and skills and workable immigration policies.

  • Louise Haycock (Partner, Fragomen LLP)
    Louise attends a variety of working groups with government officials to represent the needs of employers and is working with clients to prepare for a new immigration regime in the UK to ensure that they remain employers of choice for a migrant workforce.

Bring your views, your questions and your concerns to share. Our roundtable will take place under the Chatham House Rule.

What is CIPD Public Policy Engagement?

The CIPD's public policy engagement involves both engaging with ministers and other policy-makers and drawing on the knowledge and expertise within our 150,000-strong membership to inform our views to government.

The expertise and data we gather from our area membership contributes to giving the CIPD an unrivalled capacity to accurately forecast labour market trends and to consider the impact of employment legislation across all sectors and sizes of organisation.

This two-way engagement can help influence policy making and day-to-day people management practice, for example, by ensuring members are aware of changes to legislation or new practitioner guidance developed in response to the CIPD's public policy work.
