Recent high profile cases involving organisations such as Tesco's and London Metropolitan University have demonstrated how failing to comply with UK immigration law requirements can have dire consequences for businesses.

Your business might not currently employ any foreign workers, but in this session three experts from Birketts LLP will explain how immigration law affects every employer's recruitment practices. In particular they will focus on the requirement for right to work checks, the risk of discrimination and the impact of immigration law on dismissal and discrimination claims generally.

This HR Forum sponsored by Birketts LLP will be an interactive session with plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion, essential for any HR professional. Join the chamber for an afternoon of accessing specialist knowledge essential for any HR professional. Sponsored by Birketts LLP.
