SPAIN, the UK and Gibraltar have found a way for cross-border workers to retain the same labour rights as before Brexit.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement explaining that the agreement was reached after meetings between the Community of Towns of the Campo de Gibraltar, the Junta de Andalucia and the General State Administration.
From December 1, cross-border workers will be able to check on a website developed by the Gibraltarian authorities if they are registered as such. If they are not, they should contact from Gibraltarian authorities to do so, via a procedure which will be explained in due course.
