Welcome to our Brexit resource centre. As the United Kingdom begins to withdraw from the European Union we will be posting our thoughts and insights on the possible issues and implications for businesses.
The in/out referendum votes have been counted and the people of Britain have decided to leave the European Union (EU).
What does this mean for employment law in England?
It'll be business as usual in the immediate future, at least, with the mechanics of leaving (if indeed we will actually leave) to be ironed out over the coming weeks, months and years (a member state has to give at least two years' notice before it can leave the EU). Though a lot of English employment law is derived from the EU, many of the underlying principles and protections existed long before the EU laws we currently have, for instance, equal pay and discrimination laws. Also, businesses have become used to a lot of laws mandated by the EU, which have become embedded in employment contracts and policies. So, what could the future hold?
