The law and best practice around global mobility and the employment of overseas nationals is a fast-moving area. Are you aware of the latest changes and how they can impact your business?

This intensive training programme covers everything the in-house lawyer needs to know when considering the employment of overseas nationals, including the risks involved and best practice. This one-day event will cover the most relevant, and fast changing, topics in the world of immigration with a focus on the UK.

This training course is part of our Commercial & Business Law Training Course collection which has been designed for the in-house lawyer.

Why you should attend?

  • Get to grips with the latest updates in immigration best practice
  • Understand the risks involved in getting it wrong and what that could mean for your business
  • Examine the primary recruitment routes available to employers
  • Clarify the processes you need to follow to remain compliant with employment law
  • Expand your knowledge of discrimination law and how to ensure inclusivity
  • Learn about agile working and the implications of cross border flexible working

Who should attend?

This event is primarily aimed at in-house lawyers but it will also be of interest and value to HR personnel and people managers looking to recruit overseas nationals.

The Global Mobility and the Employment of Overseas Nationals course will cover:

Prevention of illegal working

This session will cover a detailed look at the rules and policies around the prevention of illegal working policies, including the new (and soon to be mandatory) online verification procedure, the proposed changes in right to work verification for settled individuals and British citizens, and the implications of the Covid-19 concessions. Whilst many businesses believe they are compliant, this is actually rarely the case due to the frequent changes introduced.

Immigration options

This session will provide an overview of all UK immigration options for non-settled individuals looking to live lawfully in the UK for the purposes of work. It will cover all the primary routes employers should be aware of when looking to recruit an individual from overseas, and help them decide the most appropriate way forward. This will include:

  • Sponsor licencing
  • Skilled workers
  • Intra-company transfers (and the proposed new 'Global Mobility' route)
  • Non sponsored work options
  • Family options

Immigration compliance and discrimination

This session will show you how to ensure you remain compliant with your obligations under immigration rules and policies, whilst also ensuring you remain compliant with employment law and the avoidance of discrimination to ensure inclusivity.

Global flexible working

With an increased focus on agile working, which is often across country borders, many employers are not aware of the full implications of this. This session will therefore look to provide a high level overview of all the risks when faced with cross border flexible working, including the immigration, tax, employment, health and safety and data security considerations.
