With the Brexit vote looming, another interesting subtext to the vote is the heavy reliance UK employers have on free movement of labour. This is not merely in low skilled jobs but also, as this research shows, in "professional" and highly skilled work within the Financial Services and associated sectors.
The referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union will take place on 23 June 2016. The outcome of this referendum is highly uncertain as is the issue of whether UK employers will be able to access EEA workers as they have in the past. Individuals from countries that are members of the European Union and the EEA can seek work in any other country that is a member of the EEA.
