31 October is almost here, but Brexit is anything but finished. The Prime Minister has been unable to secure support for his Brexit plans, and now seeks to hold an early general election on 12 December if the EU Commission delays Brexit until 31 January.
Boris Johnson needs the support of 2/3 of the House of Commons to approve the December general election, and that is not certain right now. Labour Party leader Jeffery Corbyn will only agree to the election if the “no-deal” Brexit is removed from negotiations or consideration.
As the EU Commission continues to work out details, they have agreed to delay Brexit, but will not set a deadline until next week. More uncertainty will remain until a new date is set and negotiations are completed.
Keeping up with the twists and turns of Brexit has not been easy for companies with employees living and working in the EU and UK. This will continue until Brexit is complete and the ramifications are understood. In the meantime, it is important to stay up to date with the latest labor and payroll regulations for the UK and EU.
