Now that the UK has left the EU, what does Brexit mean for employers in both the UK and the EU? We take a look.


The Brexit Guide for International Employers

The UK left the EU at the end of January 2020 but remained tied to EU rules during a ‘transition period’ that lasts until 31 December 2020. But now that time is upon us and businesses on both sides of the Channel are preparing for what comes next.

We explore how a number of issues between the UK and the EU may be handled from 1 January 2021 onwards. In the Guide we provide:
– business travel;
– employment and residence;
– frontier workers;
– permanent residence, securing residence and work status.
