EHRC Scotland event – Retained EU Law: principles and implications for equality and worker rights

EHRC Scotland hosts a discussion on the general principles of retained EU law and implications for equality and worker’s rights post-Brexit with speaker Aidan O’Neill QC.

The UK left the EU on 31st January 2020. The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 will preserve the effect of all retained EU law as it stands at 31st December 2020, implementation period completion day. Retained EU law is an entirely new concept which raises many questions for practitioners, including:

• What is retained EU law?

• What legislation is retained? What happens if there is a conflict between EU law and domestic legislation?

• What case law is retained and is it binding? In what circumstances can the Courts depart from it?

• What does this mean for equality law and other aspects of worker’s rights?

This webinar aims to provide clarity on some of these complex questions.
