Labour measures adopted by the Spanish Government to reduce the impact of a no-deal Brexit
Spanish Royal Decree-Law 5/2019, dated 1 March, on the
adoption of contingency measures in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union without agreement under Article 50 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union ("TFEU") was published in Spain's Official State Gazette on 2 March (the "Royal Decree").
The temporary measures established in the Royal Decree are designed to facilitate the transition towards the situation where the UK is considered a third country, to protect the interests of citizens and economic operators who exercised their right to freedom of movement according to the liberties granted under the TFEU prior to the date the UK is expected to leave the European Union.
