SA Law’s panel of experts will be using their expertise and experience to discuss this challenging topic. They will explain how your organisation can stay compliant as you attract, recruit, on-board and retain migrant workers, and dismiss them if the need arises. Tricky workplace issues can arise when employment & immigration regulations collide such as questions over an employees right to work in a dismissal scenario. But which takes precedent? Are the employment rights for migrants the same as those for British nationals? How can you be fully compliant? Through using case studies to demonstrate key challenges and solutions, this event will help you reduce the risk of employment-related claims being made against your organisation, while avoiding substantial fines for immigration non-compliance. The event will also answer key questions such as: Am I obliged to extend a sponsored migrant employee’s visa? What right-to-work checks do I need to undertake after Brexit? What should I do if there is uncertainty over an employee’s right to work? How should I handle dismissal if an employee loses their right to work? What if an employee transferring under TUPE isn’t eligible to work in the UK? Can dismissal for poor performance be handled by allowing a visa to lapse? Can I positively discriminate in my recruitment process? SA Law’s employment experts will be joined by employment barrister Satinder Gill, and Eva Stock from Focus Info UK, which is a service for ex-pats living in the UK. This free event not only gives you a chance to put your questions to our experts, but also gives you an opportunity to network with legal experts and HR professionals.
