Business immigration: overview

This note introduces some of the most relevant concepts of business immigration law, such as who can work in the UK without permission, business and work-related immigration categories, and the scope of employers' legal duty to prevent illegal working. It also flags up proposed changes, and considers the immigration implications of the UK withdrawing from the EU (Brexit) for UK employers.
