Maclay Murray & Spens LLP to host Brexit and People Seminar

Posted: 25th May 2017

The UK and the EU have recognised the sensitivity of the position of individuals and their rights post the UK exiting the EU. It is also one of the most immediate issues facing employers.

Many organisations have indicated their need for access to talent and are concerned that employees may need to leave or they won’t be able to bring in the talent in the future. The UK Conservatives still talk in terms of net migration in the tens of thousands. Irrespective of the outcome of UK–EU negotiations, the exit bill and the UK’s future relationship with the EU, employees and employers will be affected by the outcome as well as by any immigration regime put in place.

Recognising the need to stay informed, MMS invite you to join us at these seminars hosted by expert speakers from the Employment, Benefits & Immigration teams, who will take a closer look at the following issues.

-Where is employment law likely to diverge from the current European path?
-What comes after free movement?
-What can employers do now to prepare for a post-Brexit world?

This seminar would be of benefit to HR professionals, in house lawyers, senior management and anyone who may be impacted by these changes.
