Why EU need a sponsor licence

If you missed our webinar on ‘why you need a EU immigration sponsor licence’ then you missed out! For those of you who could not join us live, a recording of the webinar is available here.

We discussed:

On 1 December 2020 the UK government introduced a revamped point-based system for sponsoring migrant workers including those EU workers who were not in the UK before 31 December 2020. If you have hired workers from the EU in the past, to continue to do so you will need to be registered as a sponsor with UKVI. Do you want to leave this until the point where your business has identified an overseas candidate? That could leave you behind the curve.

We have seen a lot of interest from companies who want to tap into the global talent pool and who recognise that recruiting from solely within the UK might not meet their future needs. Those that don’t have a licence already are applying now so that they are ready to go when talent is identified.

Our next webinar is on 25th March at 10 am: Are you dealing with employees who have chosen to move overseas during the pandemic?

One significant effect of the global pandemic on the world of work has been where employees have based themselves. We have all seen employees use the opportunity of remote working to relocate to somewhere that better suits them – whether that is a return to family in a native country, a chance to experience a different continent or working on the laptop on a beach somewhere hot.

But what employment law issues does this way of cross border working create? What can be done about them? How do you balance making sure that your company is protected whilst at the same time balancing your employee’s desires and hopes for future flexible working?

Join our panel of English, Dutch and German employment lawyers who will be discussing a fictional case study highlighting the challenges of employees and employers working from different countries, what pitfalls to watch out for, what opportunities are available and what the wider considerations for businesses embracing this way of working are.
