With heavy skills shortages and little support from the Government to fill the gaps, UK employers are obliged to fend for themselves and to sourcing skilled and highly skilled staff from overseas.

If you intend to hire overseas workers there are a number of issues to bear in mind.

Employing Migrant Workers


Date:  30 March 2022

Host: Roelens Solicitors, Berard & Lovell and Spires Legal 

Presented by Nilmini Roelens, Helene Berard and Arj Arul

on Employing Migrant Workers

The Right to Work checks we must all conduct as employers are an important part of the recruitment process. Ensuring that these are properly conducted, and that adequate evidence is retained, are essential early steps in employing workers of any nationality. The provisions are changing from 6 April 2022. Are you ready?

There are important considerations in the early stages of any employment relationship at the time of the offer and acceptance. This ensures that all parties are aware of what is expected to avoid problems later.
