Labour and Social Standards are addressed briefly  In the Christmas Eve Brexit deal at pages 200-201, Chapter 6 of Title XI in Part 2, of the Agreement between  the UK and the EU. The deal does no more than to prohibit a reduction in the level of protection for workers or failure to enforce rights in a manner that goes so far as to have an effect on trade or investment. Subject only to that, the UK will be free to make its own decisions. EU retained law will not have a special place on the statute book. There will be a new procedure for dispute resolution.
