#HRHour Live Blog: Q&A - May 22nd

Q. #HRHour I'm in the process of taking on a Spanish employee - is there anything extra to consider with regards to employment of EU workers? (@mygenerationuk)

A. My understanding is that nationals of Spain can work in the UK without any restrictions.  You may like to review the UK Border Agency website which will detail exactly which workers from European countries can work in the UK without needing to obtain the UK Border Agency's permission, and explains how to check that other European workers have obtained the right to work here.




Q. Hi #HRHour, do you think changes to employment law make this a good time to be considering taking on a new permanent employee? Thanks! (@carpetstudiouk)

A. Anytime is a good time to be recruiting, as it can demonstrate that your business is moving from strength to strength at a time when businesses are facing a demanding economic period.  Employment law updates twice a year in April and October and so it is essential that you are aware of any amendments, so that you can ensure you are legally compliant in any recruitment & selection process you carry out and further more you are complaint with employment legislation for your current and future employees.
