What might a ‘no-deal’ Brexit mean for UK employment rights? What could employers do now to prepare? And what might the future hold in a no-deal scenario? With new Prime Minister Boris Johnson clear that he would be prepared to leave the EU without a deal if necessary and current legislation committing the UK to leaving the EU at 23:00 on 31 October, this article revisits the employment law implications of a no-deal Brexit.  Ganzen Artikel lesen
