My rt. hon. Friend the Prime Minister has committed that following further cross-party talks, we will bring forward detailed proposals to ensure that as we leave the EU, we not only protect workers’ rights, but continue to enhance them.
We intend that the legislation will give Parliament a vote on whether it wishes to follow suit whenever the EU standards in areas such as employment rights and health and safety at work are judged to have been strengthened. It would also allow Parliament to ensure that leaving the EU will not lead to any lowering of these standards.
