From 31 January to 31 December 2020, transitional arrangements governing the UK’s exit from the EU will be in place as longer-term trade and immigration arrangements are worked out.

While a no-deal Brexit remains a technical possibility if a trade agreement between the UK and the EU is not agreed before the end of this transition, the immediate considerations for employers and people practitioners will focus on retaining their staff and preparing them to meet any future legal requirements regarding their continuing right to work in the UK.

Select below the situations which apply to your organisation to find out the actions you may need to take to prepare for Brexit. Please note that the actions focus on the various people implications rather than political or trade matters.
