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:

When you hire staff, be aware of EU rules on workers' social security contributions. A worker can only be subject to only one country's social security laws at a time, usually the laws of the country where they work, as an employee or self-employed.

Ensure that your employees work in a safe and healthy working environment. As an employer, you must follow EU-rules on risk assessment and management, to make sure you minimise the risk of accidents and prevent dangerous situations.
