ANNEX: CASE STUDIES ON FREE MOVEMENT AND CROSS BORDER ISSUES

In June 2017 British in Europe (BiE) submitted a joint response with the3million to the second round of negotiations, in which real concerns were raised in regard to, among other issues, the EU position on freedom of movement for UK citizens in the EU (UKinEU)

In particular, we are concerned that:

The EU position would only safeguard the residence rights but not those of free movement acquired under Article 21 TFEU by UKinEU.

Those residence rights would be protected only in relation to the current EU Member State of residence.

The potential impact of this, inter alia, on cross-border working.

The limitations of the current definition of “frontier worker” under EU law in addressing this issue.  British in Europe now wishes to provide some follow-up on this issue, as well as the related issue of cross-border working, which it has set out in this addendum.
