Brexit update: what changes for employers in 2021?

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the daily news coverage that comes with it, seems to have pushed Brexit-related issues to the back of many people’s minds. However, a new immigration system will apply to people arriving in the UK after 11 pm on 31 December 2020 when the EU withdrawal transition period comes to an end.

From 1 January 2021 both EU and non-EU citizens moving to the UK to work from that date will need to obtain a visa in advance. Those applying for a skilled worker visa will need to show they have a job offer from an approved employer sponsor to be able to apply.

Are you confident that you know what’s expected from you as an employer going into 2021? Do you know what right to work checks you’ll be expected to make (and when) when working with EU citizens?

If the answer to that is no, this exclusive free guide is the perfect place to start. Our HR and Employment Law experts have summarised the main factors affecting employers, so you can get ready for the end of the Brexit transition period.
