A consultation aiming to investigate the attitudes toward a possible cap on non-EU economic migration to the UK has been launched by the government. The consultation plans to gather opinions from a wide range of sectors regarding the suitability of such a cap, the mechanisms of implementing it, and the effect it is likely to have on performance within organisations.
The CIPD is interested to hear any experience or knowledge you may have in this area, and aim to represent your views in our consultation response. The consultation seeks contributions from all sizes of organisations across all sectors.
