EU LAWS: What Brexit would mean for employers

03 July 2015  

Elizabeth Slattery and Jo Broadbent consider how employment law might change if the UK votes to leave the EU

As the European Union Referendum Bill begins its passage through Parliament, the focus of many commentators is firmly on David Cameron’s EU reform agenda. The outcome of that agenda will obviously not be known for some time; until it is, employers will not have a clear idea whether the government will be campaigning for an in or out vote in the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU. Given that uncertainty, it is worth thinking at this stage about what an out vote could mean for employment policy in the aftermath of the referendum.
