Should staff be compelled to have the COVID-19 vaccine?
Where migrants have recently obtained a visa or visa extension in the UK, the new visa will be endorsed on a Biometric Residence Card (BRP). This has been the case since BRPs were introduced in early 2010. It is not advisable for migrants to undertake travel following the visa approval until they have received their BRP, which usually follows within 5 days of confirmation of the visa approval. Unfortunately, systems used by immigration officials at the ports are not immediately synchronised with those in use by the BRP team. This has led to migrants being delayed at immigration control for up to 2 hours if they travel without the BRP, so that checks can be undertaken.
New Call for Evidence from the Migration Advisory Committee
The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has just issued a call for evidence on the Shortage Occupation List (SOL). It requires evidence in response to the following questions:-
Please click here for a link to the current list of shortage occupations, which can be found at Annex A on page 19. We strongly recommend that employers provide evidence relating to the SOL, particularly if you currently recruit migrants for positions on the shortage list. Evidence should be provided by 30 November and Kingsley Napley would be pleased to assist with submitting your evidence. We will also be making our own submission and in the meantime if any employers would like to attend an event at the MAC where these issues will be discussed, please inform your usual Kingsley Napley contact.
For more information, please contact a member of the immigration team.
