New guidance on the impact of Brexit on workplaces

Source: ACAS | | 15/04/2019

Acas has published new general guidance to assist employers and employees in understanding the impact that Brexit may have in their workplace and it gives advice regarding the steps they may want to take before the UK leaves the EU. 

It advises that EU membership can impact workplaces in several ways, such as:

  • providing goods and services to other members of the EU
  • using goods and services provided by other members of the EU
  • employing EU citizens
  • having UK employees work in the EU.

Many UK employment rights also come from EU directives and court decisions about some employment disputes can be made in the EU courts.

The new guidance explains the potential changes to employment law as a result of the UK leaving the EU and it provides links to the government’s technical guidance. It also explains the impact of Brexit on EU citizens working in the UK and it again provides links to government guidance on their rights. Finally, it offers advice to employers when talking to their staff about how they may be affected by Brexit.
