Brexit impact on your workforce – 11/12/2020


Brexit will impact on your workforce in a number of ways, including:

  • From January 2021 there will be a new immigration regime
  • EU/EEA/Swiss nationals who wish to live and work in the UK
  • Recognition of qualifications
  • Travel (visa requirements, passport rules)

Existing employees of UK companies who are EU nationals will need to apply for settled status.

Do you employ UK nationals living in the EU/EEA/Switzerland? If so, check out this government guidance: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/living-in-europe

It is important to plan for cut-off dates and any differential status that might apply to new arrivals to the UK.

Do you have staff that travel to the EU for work, if so, check out the guidance for travel and visa requirements for the EU here: https://www.gov.uk/visit-europe-1-january-2021
