Brexit and Immigration
Blacks Solicitors’ Immigration team in Leeds provide advice to businesses in relation to the impact of Brexit on their workforce.
Brexit is of particular concern to businesses that currently employ EU nationals and their family members, or are likely to do so in the future.
In order to secure their status and their ability to live in the UK long-term, all EU nationals and their family members will have to register under the EU Settlement Scheme. However, many EU nationals might be able to naturalise as British citizens and thereby secure the strongest form of immigration status and protection against any future uncertainty.
Helping to Secure the Rights of EU Employees
With record numbers of EU citizens leaving the UK, employers can play a crucial role in helping to secure the status of their EU employees and, in doing so, can provide the kind of reassurance that many will appreciate.
Blacks’ Business Immigration team regularly help employers secure the best possible immigration status for all of their migrant employees, whether this is achieved through guidance around registration under the EU Settlement Scheme or on how to obtain British Citizenship.
We can consult directly with your HR team, and directors, so that you can provide guidance to your staff and can also provide workshops for affected employees and advise them directly on how best to secure their status.
Our Business Immigration team can also provide strategic advice around your company’s future recruitment needs from overseas.
The Team is at the forefront of the latest changes around Brexit and immigration and has provided consultation to a range of different bodies on the future of the UK’s long-term immigration policy.
EU nationals and their family members are also welcome to contact us directly for advice.
