Happening now: xenophobia and discrimination rule OK

An acquaintance from Facebook has just heard of:

"an account of a tribunal decision where the judge ruled it was fair to dismiss someone because the employer had been advised (privately) by the Home Office that her immigration status, currently perfectly in order, might, at some future stage, be changed. We are also seeing at least a fifth of people filling in the 85 page form being rejected, because they haven't got the right paperwork, have spent periods outside the country, have not been working all the time etc etc. People who blithely asserted before the referendum that EU migrants would be fine because the bosses needed them, might like to reconsider their opinions and join campaigns to defend their rights (and those of all migrants)."
