Brexit: resource round-up

Following the UK's departure from the EU on 31 January 2020, free movement for UK nationals in the EU, and EU nationals in the UK, continues until the end of the Brexit transition period, 31 December 2020. After this point, EU nationals entering the UK for work purposes will need permission to do so. Our guidance listed below takes you through the ins and outs of the new immigration system, as well as how to make sure your right to work checks are compliant from 1 January 2021.

Planning ahead for how Brexit will affect your workforce, including your ability to retain talent and recruit new employees, is key. See below for our resources on workforce planning. This includes what you need to know about the EU settlement scheme, which can give existing EU employees a right to stay in the UK indefinitely. HR teams need to appreciate how the scheme works so they can help their staff understand what it means for them.

EU law continues to apply to the UK as if it were a member of the EU until 31 December 2020. Our resources can help you to understand the impact of any potential changes to employment law after the transition period.

We provide new guidance on a regular basis, and add it to the list below. Browse the list or use the "Go to section" drop-down (above) to explore.
