The American Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg (AMCHAM) has announced that it is organising a public seminar, in collaboration with the British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg (BCC), on "Brexit: Avoiding the Risks and Planning for the Future" on Monday 7 October 2019 at 18:30 at St. Georges' International School in Luxembourg-Hamm.

AMCHAM and the BCC have teamed up with immigration professionals from Brussels and London and global immigration firm Fragomen to offer this seminar, in the presence of British Ambassador to Luxembourg, John Marshall. The aim of the event is to show how, with careful planning, businesses and individuals can manage the risks and issues in the least disruptive way in the run up to and following an increasingly likely no deal Brexit.

The seminar will help attendees understand the contingencies that they can make now in relation to British and EU nationals traveling to the UK.  It will also provide practical advice on how to communicate to and reassure any impacted employees.  In addition, the seminar will look at the impact Brexit could have from the perspective of social security cost and services.
