The Government has published its White Paper on the basis on which it proposes to approach negotiations with the EU on Brexit.
There are three parts of the White Paper which will be of particular interest to employers:
- Controlling immigration
- Securing rights for EU nationals in the UK and UK nationals in the EU
- Protecting workers' rights
There is nothing particularly surprising here - the Government proposes to end free movement of people and impose immigration controls on EU nationals, as has been previously announced. Employment law will remain largely intact in the short term.
