Surviving Brexit: Five things every practice needs to prepare for

Comment

Point no. 1 is not quite correct. By current law, the employer is NOT entitled to check the status of EU citizens they are already employing. Also, until December 2020 (no-deal scenario) or June 2021 (if we have a deal), it is NOT lawful to ask potential future employees from the EU to confirm whether they have obtained Settled or Pre-Settled status that allows them to work and live in the UK. That said, it is in the best interest of everyone that the employer ensures all their EU staff is aware of the application process and provides support if needed. You wouldn't believe how many people have no idea because they don't keep up with the media.
