The Eu-Uk Withdrawal Agreement Explained (Slides)


The appointing authority will not make use of Article 49 of the Staff Regulations on forced abduction and British officials will continue to hold office. After the withdrawal of the United Kingdom (on 30.03.2019 in case of no deal or end of the transitional period), they will no longer be employed by delegation. They will be transferred to headquarters by September 2019. Contract agents will work at headquarters for a maximum of four years. Seconded Uk national experts or seconded temporary agents shall return to the United Kingdom on the day of their departure. The procedure for granting derogations will use precise and transparent criteria and there will be a right to consultation. The trial lasts at least 3 months. Britain and the EU have published this new version of the draft withdrawal treaty. It is color-coded and shows where the two parties have agreed (in green), where they are halfway to an agreement (in yellow) and where things are not resolved (in white). As regards temporary agency workers and temporary agents, Articles 47 and 119 of the BSDS provide that the employment relationship is in principle interrupted when a staff member is no longer a national of a Member State. However, the EEAS will act on a case-by-case basis to allow the authority vested with the power to take exemption measures from the nationality clause in order to extend contracts (before 29.3.2019) in order to find the best solution in the interest of the service and the persons concerned. As regards staff of British nationality in EU delegations, a number of issues need to be resolved and the EEAS is working closely with the Commission to define a common approach.
