Report states that workers' rights are at risk after Brexit, even in event of deal


Tue, 09 Oct 2018

A report by the Institute for Public Policy Research has warned that workers' rights are at risk once the UK leaves the EU even if a Brexit deal is struck. It warns that the non-regression clauses being proposed to ensure there will be no roll-back of rights will not be a strong enough protection for workers. The thinktank proposes a common rulebook, with the UK developing workers' rights in parallel with the EU, overseen by a supranational court to enforce breaches, as an alternative to non-regression clauses.
