Immigration law is an incredibly fast-changing and complex area of law. Successive changes to law and policy and the advent of Brexit means that it is harder for people to meet the criteria for many immigration applications and access to international talent may be severely restricted in the future. Effectively managing business and resource planning is therefore key for a post-Brexit Britain.
Regulation on hiring foreign workers from abroad and from within the UK is very strict and it is paramount that companies are compliant with the UK’s Immigration Rules and policy. It is imperative that any business maintains an up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the immigration system in order to protect its existing workforce and to avoid any adverse repercussions to either its employees or the business attributable to reputational damage from enforcement action taken by the Home Office.
