At 11pm on 31 January 2020, the UK officially leaves the EU. During the transition period up to the end of 2020, current EU rules on trade and employment rights will continue to apply in the UK.
The government has indicated that after the transition period, existing EU-based employment legislation will continue to apply in domestic law.
Employers and employees can find guidance on GOV.UK on:
- the transition period after leaving the EU
- checking if someone has the right to work in the UK
- applying for settled status
