Employment & Immigration

Appleby boasts the largest global offshore employment & immigration team, both in terms of number of lawyers and global reach.

With significant changes in recent years to the employment laws in Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and Jersey as well as changes to the immigration law in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, it is becoming of increasing concern to employers as they and their employees become affected by these changes.

Our Employment & Immigration lawyers inform leading international companies based in our offshore jurisdictions of the changes in order to prevent litigation and minimise immigration delays or issues. As the law evolves, our lawyers are increasingly representing clients before the appropriate tribunals, courts and departments.

We advise and represent employers and employees regarding existing and changing laws. We assist with matters such as:

  • Representing both employers and employees before the appropriate tribunals in Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey;
  • Advising on all contentious and non-contentious employment, labour and immigration issues in these jurisdictions;
  • Assisting and advising in all matters regarding the hiring and retention of staff, including drafting employment contracts, policies and procedures.
