Employment discrimination on grounds of nationality is in most cases prohibited by the Equality Act 2010 and will remain so.
The Government has made clear that workers’ rights that are enjoyed under EU law, including anti-discrimination rights, will also continue to apply after we have left the European Union. Unlawful discrimination against non-UK EU citizens is and will remain unacceptable.
The Government Equalities Office (GEO) is aware of, and is looking into, the reports of discrimination against non-UK EU nationals seeking employment which the hon. Member has recently forwarded to the Secretary of State for Exiting the EU. The GEO sponsors the Equality and Human Rights Commission, which has powers to enforce the Equality Act 2010 in cases where it suspects unlawful discrimination in employment may have occurred.
