Employer Survey – Employment Law Post Brexit
Perhaps surprisingly, a new survey shows support from employers for keeping the UK’s existing employment rights once the Brexit deal has completed.
Examples include laws on unfair dismissal which were supported by 93% of the 500 businesses surveyed. 82% of those surveyed supported parental rights at work and 74% backed the Working Time Regulations which is largely expected to be repealed following Brexit.
The survey covered 28 areas of employment law and found that all 28 were rated as necessary by a majority of employers.
The research also found that more than two-thirds (68%) agree that the rules have a positive impact on employees, increasing their sense of fairness and trust in the employer.
