Brexit one year on: what's changed for the UK Immigration System?

Webinar | Brexit

About This Webinar

Thursday 20 January 2022, 9:30 - 10:00
We are now one year since the Brexit transition period ended and the UK officially left the EU. Our UK immigration system has been completely reformed from 2021 to cater for the end of free movement of EU citizens to the UK and employers have had to re-consider recruitment strategies, particularly those heavily reliant on a EU workforce.
In this webinar, we will look back at:
  • Key points and learnings of the sponsorship system over the last 12 months

  • What the future of the UK immigration system will look like and how businesses can prepare

  • We will also update you on changes expected in Spring 2022 when the Home Office’s transition period for the remote right to work checks ends, the introduction of new visas routes on the horizon, and looking into the future, specifically the new digitising of the UK Border in years to come.

There is much more change coming in 2022. Businesses must ensure they are ready to make the most of opportunities, steer clear of any fines which potentially can be up to £20,000, and also ensure recruitment strategies and policies are up to date.
Our speakers are Tijen Ahmet and Calum Hanrahan, both immigration specialists who work with global and UK businesses advising on strategic international recruitment, immigration compliance, facilitating work assignments and relocation to the UK.

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is aimed at HRDs, Global Mobility Managers, HR & Immigration Managers, Risk & Compliance Managers and private individuals who wish to visit or settle in the UK.

Brexit: Personal data after Brexit – what will change and how should you prepare?

With Kim Walker, Partner
Wednesday 18 November 2020

On 1 January next year, a UK version of the GDPR will replace the current general data protection regulation. The UK will become a “third country” for the purposes of cross-border transfers of personal data from the European Economic Area. On top of this, the effectiveness of the safeguards provided by the Standard Contractual Clauses, which have up to now been the way most UK businesses have ensured transfers of personal data to the US and elsewhere were lawful, has recently been cast into doubt by the European Court’s Schrems II decision.

This webinar explores:

  • What will change for businesses that need to transfer personal data into or out of the UK or process the personal data of EEA customers, employees and others
  • What these changes mean and what practical steps businesses should be taking to ensure personal data can keep flowing lawfully.

Brexit: The effects on EU and UK intellectual property rights

With Mauro Paiano – Partner, and Daniel Goodall - Associate
Thursday 5 November 2020

Brexit will bring about a series of changes and challenges for the protection of intellectual property (IP). When the transition period ends on 31 December this year, the laws will change and businesses will need to revisit their IP rights. There is also great uncertainty as to what extent the UK may – or may not - diverge with EU law moving forward.

Companies and owners of intellectual property rights should act now to ensure they protect their IP assets prior to the transition period ending 31 December.

This webinar cover:

  • Brexit impact on existing registered EU intellectual property
  • Creation of comparable UK rights
  • Immediate steps to take to protect your IP rights
  • Impact on unregistered rights such as copyright and unregistered designs
