  • Options for global investors and entrepreneurs.
  • The impact of the EU referendum on immigration policy.
  • The view from the US.
  • Key compliance concerns for cross border HR.

Immigration policy is the most contentious topic in British politics today.  Members of Parliament report that it was the “number 1 issue” on the doorstep during the General Election campaign in May 2015.

Despite net migration running at approximately 333,000 a year, the Government has publicly maintained its determination to reduce the figure to the tens of thousands during the course of this Parliament.  This is despite many business leaders and organisations calling for the flexibility to sponsor the skilled workers and entrepreneurs that they need, regardless of their country of origin.

In the US, the immigration debate, particularly in respect of undocumented migrants, is heating up as part of the 2016 political process. The EU migrant crisis has impacted on public opinion both in the US and the UK.
