Employing Non-UK National Staff; A Post-Brexit Briefing

Danubius Hotel Regents Park , 18 Lodge Road, St. John's Wood, London NW8 7JT

After almost three years, employers and EU employees alike are tiring of the uncertainty of Brexit. Recruitment and retention have both suffered as UK businesses have been unable to plan effectively in a politically unstable climate.

Registration fee: £395 + VAT

Post-October 31st, things will be much clearer and we are delighted to announce a unique event, part of our BFI Brexit for HR portfolio; a comprehensive post-Brexit briefing for employers.

Our recent sell-out Brexit planning events have delivered:-

  • Hard facts
  • Workable strategy
  • Expert speakers

And this event builds on our unrivalled track record.

In one information-packed day, our well-researched programme will address YOUR concerns and help you:-

  • Understand the new legal landscape: what employment law changes must you accommodate and how will that affect your EU employees, now and in the future?
  • Get the facts and latest key developments to help you formulate a practical and workable recruitment and retention strategy
  • Understand the changes to EWCs and what you need to do about skills and PBS
  • Get to grips with new immigration law and understand the implications to your organisation and workforce
  • Learn how to support your UK employees working in  the EU – how will they be affected by Brexit

A speaker line-up of proven experts will also look at real-life case studies and answer your specific enquiries in a special employer-focussed panel session.
