Brexit, Immigration an Free Movement: Issues for Employers
The provisions for leaving the EU are outlined in Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, which states that "Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements." The UK will remain part of the EU (and subject to EU rules and regulations) until Article 50 is triggered and the negotiations with other member states have concluded, or the two year notice period (or any agreed extended period) has elapsed.
The timing for triggering Article 50 is still under discussion. We know it will not take place before the end of 2016. We consider below the current visa arrangements in the UK, possible alternative models and their impact on EU nationals living in the UK.
