New immigration rules turn up the pressure on employers
21st July, 2016
Helen Watson, Partner & Head of Employment Law, has written a feature on new immigration legislation: New immigration rules turn up the pressure on employers, published in HR Magazine 20th July 2016.
The article focuses on how new legislation that has come in, The Immigration Act 2016, will mean ‘increases in penalties for employers who take on illegal migrant workers’.
This new legislation raises many questions for employers:
- How to protect yourself and your business?
- How to prevent legal migrant workers being affected by false claims that cause stress and affect productivity?
- How do you avoid allegations that checks are discriminatory?
Helen’s article addresses the legal issues raised by these questions in practical terms. To read the full article click here
