Brexit and Business Presentation January 31st 2017

26th January 2017 by

Following the UK’s decision to leave the EU after over 43 years of membership, there are plenty of questions and uncertainties surrounding the future both of current employees, and the employment of overseas workers.  In a world of continued globalisation, we understand the necessity of having a network of employees, both local and overseas, in order to help your business to thrive and expand.  Our presentation will look to answer any legal questions you may have surrounding the employment of overseas workers, and provide you with any assistance you may need.
