Legal Alert

This update was published in Legal Alert - January 2014

Legal Alert is a monthly checklist from Atom Content Marketing highlighting new and pending laws, regulations, codes of practice and rulings that could have an impact on your business.

Notably, the new guidance sets out new rules applicable when employing Romanian or Bulgarian nationals, following the lifting of restrictions on such nationals wanting to work in the UK from January 2014. The document also gives new guidance on employing Croatian nationals taking into account the restrictions on them introduced in July 2013.

There is also guidance on how to use the new Fast Payment option to pay any civil penalties.
