The UK is due to leave the EU by automatic operation of law on 12 April* unless the government's  beleaguered Withdrawal Agreement is approved or something else happens.

Acas has published new guidance to assist employers and employees in understanding the impact Brexit may have in their workplace.

It explains the potential changes to employment law stemming from the UK leaving the EU, and provides links to the government technical guidance. The guidance also explains the impact of Brexit on EU citizens working in the UK, provides links to government materials on their rights and goes on to offer advice to employers when talking to their employees about how they may be impacted by the UK's exit. 

The guidance confirms that tribunal and court decisions appealed to the European Court of Human Rights will not be impacted by Brexit.
