On 27 November, Newland Chase partnered with the United Kingdom Home Office’s UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) to present an exclusive invitation-only roundtable on Brexit and the UK’s new settled status scheme for European Union nationals. Held in our Angel Court, London office, Newland Chase clients received the latest developments and guidance on Brexit, the status of EU residents in the UK, and what companies need to be doing to support their EU national employees. Attendees represented the HR and mobility managers of many of the largest and most successful multinational companies operating in the UK.
Newland Chase’s UK Managing Directors, Tony Butterworth and Darren Faife, joined representatives of UKVI in providing detailed information to assist EU nationals obtain settled status (permanent residence) and pre-settled status (leading to permanent residence) in the UK. The half-day session included a preview demonstration of the new online registration system being rolled out by the Home Office and an opportunity for attendees to pose questions of both the Newland Chase and the UKVI experts ahead of full implementation of the system.
From the early days after the 2016 referendum, Newland Chase has been at the forefront of preparing companies and their EU employees in the UK for the coming Brexit of the UK from the EU – now scheduled to occur on 29 March 2019.
