Keep an eye on: the Brexit Freedoms Bill

13 October 2022

While news of the Growth Plan has dominated the news, it is easy to miss things that could affect you. One such thing is the Brexit Freedoms Bill.

This bill will amend, repeal or replace and EU law that still has special legal status on 31 December 2021. This will mean all retained EU law will cease to be applicable in the UK, unless specifically brought into the UK statute.

We will need to dive into which law is to be scrapped and which to be made part of UK law as we get more information. However this has the potential to impact employment law, tax law and other statutory rights.

The bill will apply to all parts of the UK, allowing devolved administrations to rebuild legislation as they see fit.

The full press release from Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Jacob Rees-Mogg explores the governments plans in further detail.
