Blu Global’s policy is to not discriminate against any potential candidate that uses our services to find employment, and we refute any allegations that we, as a business, discriminate in any way against our UK based applicants. We are fully committed to welcoming all candidates that have the required skills and experiences and will only base any candidate rejections on these criteria alone. No candidate is denied a chance of employment based on their nationality, age, race, gender or sexual orientation. We want to ensure that there is no ambiguity regarding any future candidate rejections; we wish to make it totally clear that if someone is not accepted for a position it will be because they do not have the desired skills or experience, the relevant qualifications or that they may live too far away from the location of work, as some clients have stipulations on how far their workers travel to the work depot: this is particularly relevant to HGV drivers.
We can confirm that we continuously place candidates of European and British nationality within all of our past and present clients as we advertise for, and recruit, candidates both in the UK and across mainland Europe.
Any deviation from this policy, by any member of staff or any independent person/organisation acting under or using the Blu Global brand, is not supported in any way by the company and will be fully investigated. The independent freelance consultant has had her contract for service terminated with us immediately after the events.
There has been no change to the rights and status of EU nationals* in the UK, and UK nationals in the EU, as a result of the referendum.
The decision about when to trigger Article 50 and start the formal process of leaving the EU will be for the new Prime Minister. The UK remains a member of the EU throughout this process, and until Article 50 negotiations have concluded.
When we do leave the EU, we fully expect that the legal status of EU nationals living in the UK, and that of UK nationals in EU member states, will be properly protected.
The government recognises and values the important contribution made by EU and other non-UK citizens who work, study and live in the UK.
There has been no change to the right of EU nationals to reside in the UK and therefore no change to the circumstances in which someone could be removed from the UK.
As was the case before the referendum, EU nationals can only be removed from the UK if they are considered to pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to the public, if they are not lawfully resident or are abusing their free movement rights.
