Brexit implications

Overview

On 23 June 2016 the UK voted in the EU Referendum to leave the European Union (EU). A majority of the population voted to Leave, rather than Remain, triggering the start of preparations for the UK withdrawing from the bloc.

The Prime Minister used the 2016 Queen’s Speech to reiterate the government’s commitment towards protecting and enhancing worker rights following Brexit.

Although it is not clear what amendments may be made to employment law, or when any changes will take effect, it is possible to predict that some changes will take place.
