Brexit

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Many UK businesses have relied upon straightforward access to the EU labour market to meet their staffing needs.  They will need to adapt to be ready for the UK's new immigration system that will be in place from 1 January 2021, and the deadlines that are part of the new regime, to ensure that their staff are able to comply with the requirements.  EU nationals meanwhile must also understand what is required in order to enter or stay in the UK from 1 January 2021. 

Whilst Brexit may not have immediate implications in relation to UK employment laws and employee rights, there may be areas in the future where the UK will take a different approach to the EU.
