Equal treatment and qualifications

UK decision to invoke Article 50 of the TEU: More information

As of 30 March 2019, all EU law will cease to apply to the UK, unless a ratified withdrawal agreement establishes another date, or the European Council and the UK decide unanimously to extend the two-year negotiation period. For more information about the legal repercussions for businesses:

Make sure you treat jobseekers from other EU countries the same as applicants from your country. You must also provide the same working conditions for your staff, regardless of their EU country of origin, and you cannot discriminate because of gender, racial or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age or sexual orientation.

To work in your country, staff who obtained their qualifications in another EU country must make sure that their experience and profession are recognised in your country, for example, by using the European Professional Card.
