As the UK have opted to leave the EU it would be open for the UK to simply abandon all EU directives. This would have a substantial impact in relation to laws such as employment law such as the Working Time Directive. This restricts the number of hours that employees are able to work and also imposes the need for compulsory breaks to be given at certain times. Take for example a charity, working within the care sector which is required to provide round the clock care for vulnerable individuals but in order to be able to do so needs to recruit two members of staff so that adequate breaks can be taken. Potential changes in law would have a substantial impact upon whether such directives remain as good law. Laws in relation to manufactured goods could change allowing the old light bulbs to return.
