Entrepreneurs & creatives: boycott the foreign employee register

This petition had 538 supporters

Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary, has outlined proposals that all UK businesses should be required to maintain a register of foreign employees and report them to the government. It is disgraceful that such a policy should be suggested in any modern society.

Entrepreneurs actively bring together people from different backgrounds and cultures to help their businesses succeed. Britain's ethnic diversity and its history of openness to people from other countries is one of its greatest strengths.

The Trampery makes a commitment that if the proposed legislation is introduced we will refuse to comply, regardless what penalties are imposed. Under no circumstances will we create a register of foreign employees or provide such details to the government. The proposal is simply too troubling to accept.

If you're an entrepreneur or a creative professional and you feel strongly about the proposal please sign the petition to indicate that you will boycott the legislation if it's passed. 

The entrepreneurial and creative community is the future of Britain's economy. Together we can send a signal that we are not willing to be part of a society based on xenophobia and division.
