Job Security Fears Following Brexit

Many employees have been left feeling vulnerable about their job security following the UK’s decision to leave the EU, a new survey by CIPD has found.

Around 36% of employers questioned said staff had expressed concerns about job security, while a further 36% of organisations said that non-UK employees had expressed concern about their continuing right to work in the UK.

The survey also found evidence of increased workplace tension and division as a result of the Brexit vote, with almost one in ten (8%) respondents saying incidents had been reported and a further 25% saying incidents had been hinted at but not reported.

“There is no doubt the vote to leave the UK has had a significant impact on the workplace with many people worrying about their future employment prospects,” commented Ben Willmott, Head of Public Policy at the CIPD. “This is especially true of non-UK nationals, with many clearly concerned about their ability to continue to live and work in the UK after the vote.”

“The Government needs to clearly set out their plans at the earliest opportunity for non-UK citizens to give those workers the clarity and security that they are seeking,” he said.

“The reports of division and tension at work are also a concern, coming as they do in the wake of reports of increased incidents of hate crimes,” he added. “Employers have a duty of care to their employees and must ensure their working environment is fair, welcoming and tolerant for all. Line managers in particular have a key role in nipping conflict in the bud and making sure that what some may see as ‘banter’ does not cross the line and become offensive or harassment.”
