Looking Ahead: Updates for Global Employers on the Impact of Brexit and the COVID-19 Pandemic on Employee Mobility

August 20, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

On December 31, 2020, the free movement of workers between the EU and the UK will end because of Brexit. While there is a slight chance that this deadline will be temporarily postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies should be prepared for the fact that the UK sponsorship system that now applies to non-EU workers will be extended to nationals recruited from the EU starting January 2021. Brexit, and the ending of the free movement of workers, will have a significant impact on global mobility.

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic is still causing uncertainties with respect to business travel, employee posting, and work permit and visa application processes worldwide.

In this webinar, we plan to discuss changes in global mobility practices due to Brexit and provide an update on COVID-19’s impact on global mobility.
