Brexit & You – What it means

On the 29th March 2019 Britain is due to leave the EU so what does this mean to all of us?

The free movement of people ends 31 st December 2020 (30th June 2021 if the UK enters into a deal). If you are an EU National it will have no immediate change for you and your family if they are living in the UK.

However, any EU Nationals will need to apply for ‘Settlement Status’ and this is broken down into two sectors, if you have been in the UK for less than 5 years then you will need to apply for ‘Pre-Settlement Status’ and if you have been here for more than 5 years you can apply for ‘Full Settlement Status’.

Anyone using an Android mobile device can download an App called EU Exit: ID DocumentCheck and follow the on-screen instructions. Alternatively, for further information you can visit the government website; From 29th March there will be no charge for applications for settlement status, although anyone applying before this date may be charged £65.00 but this cost can be claimed back.

The above is based upon an assumption of a no ‘deal’ Brexit, however, if the UK exits the EU under ‘a deal’ then the rights of an EU National living in the UK will remain the same until 30th June 2021.

They will still need to apply for ‘settled’ status prior to this date as outlined above.

If you are looking to drive your motor vehicle outside of the UK after the 29th March 2019 then you will need to apply to your vehicle insurance company for a ‘Green Card’ which will provide evidence that you have insurance whilst driving your vehicle in the EU.

Whilst we are endeavouring to provide you with information regarding Brexit and what this means to everyone, some of the information from the government may change. We will look to update this page with any relevant changes to keep everyone informed as and when we get to know, so review this page on a regular basis.

MEM Recruitment is continuing to follow and monitor official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England. It is of vital importance for us to be in a position to ensure that any and all procedures are in place to support the health and well-being of our staff and ‘Agency Workers’.

In line with government guidance, we are continuing to operate as usual, however, we have taken steps to allow staff to work from home during this period.

Due to this measure, some of our branches will be operating a closed door policy and will provide phone and email support only to those seeking employment, registration, or general support from our teams if you are currently working with us. We will continue to register those seeking employment online via the website and email, and we will do our very best to support you at this time.

To help combat the spread of COVID-19, we have been putting precautionary safety measures in place, including:

  • Educating our staff and ‘Agency Workers’ on preventative measures
  • Emphasising frequent and proper handwashing
  • Taking advice and guidance from local health authorities
