In this blog, originally published by LexisNexis, Katie Newbury, associate in Kingsley Napley’s immigration team, advises that the most basic thing EEA nationals can and should do at this time is to gather and retain evidence relating to their residence in the UK.
The UK has voted to leave the European Union. EU citizens living in the UK are naturally wondering what this means for them. Will they be able to stay? Should they be doing anything now? What should you be advising your employees?
Nicolas Rollason and Andreas White address these and other questions in this 1 hour webinar.
With anti-immigration rhetoric pushing voters further towards a Brexit vote in the EU Referendum on 23 June, it is now clearer than ever that free movement of labour will no longer be part of our future relationship with the EU should the UK decide to leave. Indeed, Leader of the House of Commons, Chris Grayling has raised the prospect of restricting the free movement of EU citizens to the UK before we formally leave in order to “prevent a massive influx of people” moving here in a final rush before our borders are closed.
The EU referendum scheduled for 23 June 2016 could go either way. Many EU citizens living in the UK are asking their employers - and us - what they should be doing now in case the UK votes to leave. In this webinar, Nicolas Rollason discusses how Brexit would happen; how EU Citizens can protect their position; practical tips for employees; recruiting EU nationals post-Brexit; and the possible changes expected if we decide to remain in the EU.
As the debates around the UK’s continued participation in the European Union intensify, more attention is focusing on British citizens who are already living in another Member State. A challenge to the UK’s rule that any British citizen who has lived outside the UK for more than 15 years is ineligible to vote was recently rejected by the High Court but leave to appeal has been granted. Leaving aside this legal action, in this blog we look at the position of British citizens who have been living in another Member State – what can they expect in the event of a vote to leave the EU?
