How This Impacts Mobility
With Brexit finalized and the EU and U.K. still negotiating key details of their relationship after the transition period, this new points-based immigration system ends the freedom of movement to the U.K. for EU nationals. Under the new points system U.K. employers who wish to employ skilled talent from the EU must obtain the newly designated “Skilled Worker License” for sponsorship and pay the associated costs. The new system in essence solidifies the post-Brexit future of the movement of skilled talent through the country.
