EU Settlement Scheme – Information for Employers

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.
