Recruiting and retaining migrant workers post-Brexit and beyond

Any farmers with EU European Economic Area (EEA) or Swiss citizens working for them, who were already living in the UK as of 31 December 2020, and haven’t yet applied for residency, need to make eligible employees aware that they need to apply via the EU Settlement Scheme before 30 June 2021.

This session will help you avoid the pitfalls and get the correct paperwork and processes in place to make sure you are not caught unawares.
