HR advice for you and EU colleagues

On this page, you can stay up to date with guidance on what the Brexit developments mean for you as an EU member of staff and for your EU colleagues.

If you are a member of staff from the EU, your immigration status has not changed as a result of the EU referendum outcome last summer. We know that the uncertainty can be very unsettling in light of Article 50. One of the most immediate priorities that Universities UK (UUK) is urging Government to address is the confirmation of rights to reside and work in the UK post-exit for EU nationals that are currently working in the university sector and their dependents. As soon as we have an update, we will share this directly with all EU colleagues.

In the interval, Pinsent Masons, the law firm, has provided us with practical advice on immigration and the residency and citizenship options available, which may help. Going forward, our professional service teams will do all they can to support EU nationals in confirming their status, once the policies become clear; for example, by providing employment history and tax details to show the period of time working in the UK. 

If you have a question at any time, please get in touch.
