GBG Right to Work Meetup event

Meet experts and participate in discussion and debate on matters relating to Government immigration policy.

Date March 19, 2020, 17.00 to March 19, 20.00
Location GBG, 128 Queen Victoria Street, London

GBG Right to Work Meetup event.

Meet experts and participate in discussion and debate on matters relating to Government immigration policy.

  • Tackle the questions on the impact of Brexit and how that is influencing recruitment in certain sectors, and what businesses can do about it.
  • Explore recent Government announcements of a points based immigration system, the recommendations of the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) and what that could mean for UK employers.
  • Understand and discuss the transition arrangements, as the UK withdraws from the EU, what steps are needed to ensure EEA employees living and working in the UK retain their Right to Work status.

It’s reasonable to say employers are in the eye of a storm.

In less than one year businesses will have reacted to a raft of changes in Right to Work legislation, establishing new policies, implementing new procedures and communicating that across their business.

Join us and our experts as we explore the implications of the Government’s new Immigration policy at our #GBGMeetup.

The event is free to attend.

  • 5-7pm: Panel debate
  • 7-8pm: Drinks, nibbles & networking
