    The "Official" Start to Brexit in the UK

    Posted 04/06/2017 by Debbie Lamb, Junior Marketing Communications Manager

    UK Prime Minister, Theresa May officially signaled Britain's exit from the European Union (EU) on March 29, 2017, nine months after the UK citizens voted for Brexit. This action starts in motion a series of negotiations between the UK and the remaining 27 European Union (EU) Member States, represented by the European Commission. There is a two-year deadline for these negotiations, which will cover everything from trade to immigration to employment laws. If no agreements are made and no decisions are taken to extend negotiations, the UK's trade relationship with the EU will revert to the rules of the World Trade Organization, which could greatly affect Britain's current trading position. Regardless of the agreement process, the impact will be significantly felt by many UK employers, with global corporations in the United States watching what happens especially closely.

    While global migration is far from being a recent phenomenon, there has been a significant increase in the number of foreign-born workers over the last decade. In the United States, the U.S. Department of Labor indicates that, in 2013, there were 25.3 million foreign born workers in the U.S. labor force, comprising 16.3% in total.
