Brexit: Government considers scrapping some EU labour laws

Share This Post


Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng has confirmed the government is looking at scrapping some EU labour laws now it is no longer bound by the bloc’s rules.

Earlier this week Mr Kwarteng said he wanted to “protect and enhance” labour law after the Financial Times reported that some rules could be weakened. 

The minister later told business leaders the UK had an opportunity to reform regulation derived from EU law, but would not deliberately antagonise the EU – its biggest trading partner – immediately after the Brexit deal.
