ACAS has issued new guidance to assist both employers and employees in understanding the impact of Brexit in the workplace. Much employment law comes from EU directives so being prepared is vital. Whilst the government still appears to be doing the hokey-cokey when it comes to Brexit, the guidance will help employers be prepared if the UK does leave the EU.
The guidance covers some key queries employers may have, including the rights of EU citizens working in the UK. It looks at changes to legislation and the impact of Brexit on employment tribunal and court decisions, most importantly the removal of an appeal to EU courts after Brexit. There are links to government technical guidance, including how to prepare for a no deal Brexit. The guidance also encourages talking to employees about Brexit and how it might affect both them and the business.
