After Brexit, a dispute looms over a radical “dispute” with all EU rules

23. 3. 2023

The UK left the EU on January 31, 2020. As of February 1, 2020, it is no longer a member state and no longer participates in EU institutions. At the same time, it is also building a new concept of the relationship between the UK and the EU.

After Brexit, the British government plans to radically abolish all regulations that were adopted during the UK's membership of the EU. According to the plan, Britain would have to cut about 2,400 laws by the end of this year, but to regulate the sectors legally, it would have to replace them with about 1,000 new laws.

Under the withdrawal agreement, Britain has committed to retaining all labor rights under EU law. There are around 3 million EU (incl. many Czech) citizens living and working in the UK, and over 1 million UK nationals living and working in the EU – thus also in Czechia. For all of these it is important to maintain employment rights - for example, the right not to be discriminated against on grounds of nationality, the right to pay for work and other terms and conditions of employment.

National legislation that is not in line with the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement shall not apply. Under the agreement, therefore, the new UK laws should maintain consumer protection at a similar level to that which existed, as well as protection for employment relations. Both legal regulations play an important role in the business relationships for both, EU and UK.
