Status change for migrant workers after Brexit day

12 March 2019

Back in June 2017, UK Prime Minister Theresa May outlined the UK government’s proposal on the rights of EU citizens currently living in the UK, after Brexit. She said: “The UK is one of the most tolerant and welcoming places in the world and will remain that way.

A similar concept applies in England and Wales. In that jurisdiction if waste activities are seen as waste recovery, an exemption or ‘standard rules’ permit will be granted.

There are many legal and other pitfalls that can beset a growing business, including non-payment of a debt by a customer, contractual disputes with customers, suppliers or agents, employment disputes, and regulatory investigations. Dealing with such issues can divert time and resources from your business and worse, could expose the business to legal costs, which in the event legal action is unsuccessful and factoring in the risk of the opponent’s costs or adverse costs, can be considerable.
