Live Webinar | Remaining in the UK after Brexit: Essential Settlement Guidance for EU Nationals
11 March 2019 @ 2:00 pm GMT / 10:00 am ET
An estimated 3.7 million people are citizens of other European Union countries and currently live and work in the United Kingdom – many calling the UK home for years. They work in virtually every private and public sector of the economy, pay taxes, buy and consume the goods sold by local shops, own and rent homes and businesses, educate their children in the local schools, and otherwise participate in British life alongside UK citizens.
UK companies and institutions have come to rely on EU workers for everything from manual labour and skilled trades to engineering and health care. But with the coming end of Freedom of Movement for EU nationals in the UK after Brexit – the relative ease and informality by which EU nationals settle and remain in the UK comes to an end.
Employers in the UK – Protect your business by helping your valued EU employees in the UK preserve and protect their rights to live and work in the UK after Brexit. The UK government has already launched in pilot phase – with full launch March 30th – the EU Settlement Scheme for EU nationals to obtain settled status (permanent residence) in the UK. You can help retain your loyal employees by helping them navigate this new immigration requirement – ensuring their contributions to your business for years to come.
In this 60-minute webinar, you’ll gain practical knowledge and up-to-date information on:
- Brexit, the end of Freedom of Movement, and the impact on the rights of EU nationals in the UK;
- How-to instructions and guidance on using the new online EU Settlement system;
- Qualifications for Settled versus Pre-Settled status;
- Application and documentation requirements;
- How employers can best assist their EU national employees; and
- Answers to your questions in a live interactive format.
