Finally, a small piece of employment-related Brexit news for you. The Cabinet Office, Home Office and Foreign & Commonwealth Office have published a webpage with a statement on the status of EU nationals in the UK. In it they state: "When we do leave the EU, we fully expect that the legal status of EU nationals living in the UK, and that of UK nationals in EU member states, will be properly protected. The government recognises and values the important contribution made by EU and other non-UK citizens who work, study and live in the UK".

The webpage also contains questions and answers for those who may be affected, but the position is very much that there has been no change to the rights and status of EU nationals in the UK as a result of the referendum.

What Should Employers Do Next?

If any of your workforce are worried about their future in the UK, point them in the direction of the statement for reassurance.
