In this edition of Recruitment Watch, we aim to bring reassurance to the sector by highlighting certain areas fundamental for business growth in almost any economic and political climate. In an article published in the Financial Times, we look at how companies in the services sector are weathering uncertainty, by focussing on investment in technology, data analytics and security, and expansion beyond Europe.
Our immigration experts offer advice on what businesses should be doing now in order to secure the immigration status of their European workforce in the UK after the UK leaves the EU, and our regulatory expert provides a review of the key areas covered in the IR35 consultation document published earlier this month.
Comments from our Recruitment Services team frequently feature in trade magazines and here we share with you two recent highlights - one from our cyber security experts on having a robust incident management plan in case of a cyber-security breach, and another from our litigation experts on resolving and avoiding fee disputes.
Finally, we would like to highlight other important updates for the sector, including the decision in a recent Agency Workers Regulations case, an update on the reforms the government intends to make in response to the Taylor Review set out in the recently published Good Work Plan and an update on corporate governance and the new code for private companies.
