Brexit impact on your workforce

Posted: 12/11/2020

Joanne Stronach Director and Head of Employment & HR shares some useful information in a post Brexit world.

Brexit will impact on your workforce in a number of ways, including:

  • From January 2021 there will be a new immigration regime
  • EU/EEA/Swiss nationals who wish to live and work in the UK
  • Recognition of qualifications
  • Travel (visa requirements, passport rules)


Existing employees of UK companies who are EU nationals will need to apply for settled status.


It is important to plan for cut-off dates and any differential status that might apply to new arrivals to the UK.

Do you employ UK nationals living in the EU/EEA/Switzerland? If so, check out this government guidance: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/living-in-europe

Do you have staff that travel to the EU for work, if so, check out the guidance for travel and visa requirements for the EU here: https://www.gov.uk/visit-europe-1-january-2021
