This webinar will cover what employers need to know about the new immigration system and key actions to take now to prepare for the changes ahead. The panel will include an official from the Home Office and Senior Policy Advisor from FSB

Event details

In February 2020, the government outlined details of the UK’s points-based immigration system. The new system will come into force on the 1 January 2021. This will be a significant change for many small businesses that have little experience of the current immigration system. While COVID-19 has understandably taken up significant bandwidth for many businesses it is important that employers are aware and take steps in good time to prepare for the new system.

In this webinar, we will hear from the Home Office team, they will outline the UK’s new immigration points based system for businesses and provide key information for sponsoring skilled workers from outside of the UK. We will also cover key messages and practical implication for small businesses.
