On 6 April 2012 new Immigration Rules put into place the majority of the changes previously outlined in the Home Office Statement of Intent affecting Tiers 1, 2, 4 and 5 of the Points Based System, Settlement, Domestic Workers and Visitors.

On 24 May Squire Sanders presents an overview of what the new rules mean for Sponsor Licence holders, with an in-depth look at the different restrictions of which employers will need to be aware when recruiting migrant staff under Tier 2 General and Intra-Company Transfer.

Join us in our City of London office when Supinder Sian, Rose Carey and Shanti Faiia from Squire Sanders’ UK Business Immigration team will consider the practical implications of the new Immigration Rules, including:

  • Tier 2 (General) 6 year limit and changes to the criteria for settlement
  • ‘cooling off’ periods
  • the resident Labour Market Test
  • raising the Skill Level required for Tier 2
  • students and Tier 1 Post-Study Work
  • visitors carrying out Permitted Paid Engagements

This seminar (for which there is no charge) is suitable for HR professionals within organisations that hold a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence and other professionals with responsibility for managing migrant staff.

The seminar will last approximately 1 hour, with registration from 8.30am.
