The Home Office has published a “toolkit” for employers and suggests that employers “cascade it” to their employees.
EU employees cannot yet apply for “settlement” – although the application scheme is now being piloted – but the information is a useful summary of how it will work.
There are some useful reminders for employers:
- They must not discriminate against EU workers
- There will be no change to the rights of EU workers until 2021
- They should be careful not to give immigration advice when distributing information
Employers – please contact me for more information and let your EU employees know that I can advise on their current and future rights.
