A further extension of the Article 50 deadline means the United Kingdom now has until 31 January 2020 to finalise arrangements for exiting the European Union.

The flexible nature of this latest extension allows the UK to leave earlier if arrangements are agreed prior to the deadline.

Many factors remain subject to change, but businesses should take appropriate steps to plan for and reassure their workforce now. The CIPD will continue to monitor the latest developments, provide information and support for members, and engage with law makers and other key stakeholders on all of the relevant issues.

Our resources and guidance covering Brexit can be found on this dedicated hub.
