Cameron 's Immigration Bill Has Far-Reaching Consequences For Hr, Warns Legal Expert

"A proposed immigration bill outlined by Prime Minister, David Cameron, could have far-reaching consequences for employers who recruit from outside of the EU, Kerry Garcia, head of immigration at law firm Stevens & Bolton 's said. The bill could change the rules and regulations around employing migrants. If the planned legislation comes into force, it is likely to impact businesses in sectors with a shortage of skilled workers, Garcia warned. A visa levy on businesses which use foreign workers is also being considered to help fund apprenticeships. ""Sectors that have become over-reliant on migrant workers will be encouraged to train Brits instead,"" said Cameron. ""We 'll make it illegal for employment agencies to recruit solely from abroad without advertising those jobs in Britain and in English."""
