Designed for junior and mid-level HR professionals, the course will cover the key immigration law topics that affect HR. This includes the new Points-Based Immigration System, an overview of the Skilled Worker Visa, Intra-Company routes and sponsorship, the immigration implications of  Brexit and prevention of illegal working, as well as ensuring you are up to speed on the Home Office’s COVID-19 immigration guidance as relevant.

Delivered in a practical and engaging way by lawyers from our immigration team, our courses use real-life examples and case studies to really bring the issues to life. Our sessions will be as interactive as ever (even online) and you will be able to ask the questions you want of our experts.
 
Please note, we will be running the Academy as two separate two-hour sessions on 8 March from 2pm to 4pm and 9 March from 10am to 12.30pm, to make it suitable for a home working environment. You will be sent a reminder email in advance of the event with the joining details for the sessions.

Planning should also cover British nationals who are residing in the EEA, or who need to travel to the EEA from 11 pm on 31 December 2020.
