The UK left the EU at the end of January 2020 but remained tied to EU rules during a 'transition period' that lasts until 31 December 2020. But now that time is upon us and businesses on both sides of the Channel are preparing for what comes next. We explore how immigration between the UK and the EU will be handled from 1 January 2021 onwards.

Our specialist employment lawyers from across the EU and UK have put together this Guide to help international employers navigate these key issues. Sophie Maes, partner in our Belgian firm, Claeys & Engels and James Davies, partner in our UK firm Lewis Silkin are here to answer your questions.

We take a detailed look at the following topics across the countries in our EU and UK law firms:

  • Guidance on hard Brexit, with no deal
  • Business travel
  • Employment and residence
  • Frontier workers
  • Permanent residence
  • Securing residence and work status
