UK Migration Advisory Committee and toolkit for employers on the settlement scheme
The recent report from the UK Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) acknowledges the unique challenges faced here in Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, it fails to provide the necessary solutions and we believe it is therefore critical to create an immigration policy with sufficient flexibility to address Northern Ireland’s labour needs.
Manufacturing NI will continue to represent the needs of the industry to this committee. We will also be working with the Home Office over the coming months to roll out information sessions for employers on the settlement scheme and we’ll keep you updated on those once we have more detail.
In the meantime, The Home Office have developed a toolkit for employers on the settlement scheme that should be useful.
