Over half of British employers unable to make post-Brexit staffing decision


Share

The CIPD has undertaken research which has found that a high number of employers feel unprepared for the introduction of new immigration restrictions post-Brexit.

The study revealed that 56% of employers have insufficient information to make decisions about the recruitment of non-UK workers post-Brexit, with 58% not knowing anything about the new immigration restrictions as outlined in the government's white paper on the matter.

CIPD advises that proposed migration restrictions, which include placing skill and salary restrictions on migration, should be phased in to avoid potential labour supply shock.  Meanwhile 51% of employers cite the current plans to implement a 12-month temporary visa, as "not very useful" or "not useful at all".
