The landscape of immigration in the UK has changed significantly in the last year. New rules have made it more difficult to sponsor certain migrant workers, new mandatory fees are making it more expensive, compliance with your duties are more heavily scrutinised than ever before, and the immigration implications of Brexit remain unclear.
In our year-end review, we will reflect on the impact of recent changes and will consider the potential effects of proposals for further changes, from domestic UK law to Brexit. A panel, including speakers from the Home Office and Lewis Silkin LLP, will highlight the significant changes to UK immigration that we’ve seen over the past year.
We will present on recent developments affecting sponsors, such as the increasing focus on ‘genuineness’ of employment, the effect of increased costs associated with sponsorship, and the impact of higher salary requirements and fewer immigration routes for certain Tier 2 migrants. Join us and listen to industry experts address the changing immigration law landscape, and get a chance to ask questions and raise concerns that are of significance to your business and industry sector.
Further panellists will be announced in the coming weeks.
