Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, has written directly to EU nationals offering reassurance about their rights to stay in the UK following the release of the joint report on 8 December.
The letter confirms that EU citizens living lawfully in the UK by 29 March 2019, will be able to stay and have broadly the same rights and benefits as they do now. It also highlights how EU staff's existing close family members living outside the UK retain the right to join them in the future.
Your EU workforce should be encouraged to read the letter and sign up to the mailing list, which will provide updates on the settled status application scheme due to be launched in the second half of 2018.
