What do we already know?
We have commented on the potential repercussions for HR practice and Employment Law in our Blogs and Newsflashes:
- Blog: What Brexit would mean for employment law – by Simon Martin;
- Newsflash: post-Brexit – status of EU workers working in the UK; and
- Newsflash: Data protection and Brexit – what will happen?
The Government has published a statement, available here, on the status of EU nationals in the UK: “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 statement also contains FAQs for EU nationals living in the UK.
