The impact of Brexit on employment law in Scotland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the run-up to the 'Brexit' referendum, workers' rights were invoked repeatedly by both sides of the campaign as either a reason to back or oppose a British exit from the EU. Following the referendum, the debate over workers' rights and their continuing protection once the UK leaves the EU, has been reignited. The Scottish Government has expressed particular concern about Brexit’s potential impact on social rights, including the rights of workers, and is considering how Scotland can maintain protection of EU-derived rights in this area once the UK leaves the EU. What then is Brexit's potential impact on employment law in Scotland?
