The United Kingdom surprised the world last week when it voted to leave the European Union. What does Brexit mean for employees on international assignments? In the short-term, expat employees will be largely unaffected. The UK will remain a member of the European Union while it works to meet its obligations under the Lisbon Treaty. There is a two-year deadline for these negotiations, but many experts believe the process will be extended. The longer-term implications of Brexit are more difficult to predict. It is presumed that the Blue Card program for employees transferring to the UK will end. It is likely, though yet to be confirmed, that the United Kingdom will implements its own visa process for highly-skilled workers. For now, Brexit has created more questions than answers.

For a more in depth discussion on what this will mean for your expat partners, join us at the next Global HR Think Tank on July 19th at 2pm CEST, 8am EDT, 8pm CST/SGT as Fragomen presents Impact of Brexit on Expat Partners.
