We have produced a set of frequently asked questions surrounding the implications of Brexit on EU staff in the NHS. The responses have been drafted in collaboration with legal healthcare specialists, Captsticks LLP.
When Article 50 was triggered on 29 March 2017, it commenced a two-year negotiation period leading to the UK’s exit from the European Union. Negotiations are at an early stage, and the implications of Brexit remain unclear for employers and EU citizens living and working in the UK.
The government has confirmed that workers’ rights will be protected by The Repeal Bill, which will convert existing EU law into UK law. It’s not anticipated that many changes will be made to UK employment law, at least not in the short term.
Together with Capsticks, we will regularly update the FAQs, but if there are any questions that are not covered, email your query to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also sign up to our workforce bulletin for further updates.
