Brexit update

Director of Human Resources to be heard.


The Director of Human Resources provided the Committee with an update on Brexit explaining there were no further changes regarding staffing issues. Those currently employed would be supported to achieve settled status and a communications launch was due to take place updating staff on the proposals for current employees who were EU citizens. The Director explained that the Home Office had advised they would not seek to reidentify the right to live and work in the UK if this had already been done and this would be included in the communications to staff.


The Director added that Brexit meetings were taking place each week with the Town Clerk and Chief Officers to discuss issues such as recruitment of new staff from 2021. The Director cited the Spanish vets as an example noting that they were qualified to undertake inspections at the Ports and UK institutions did not offer those qualifications.
