‘April is the cruellest month’…Employment law changes are on the way

March 2, 2020
Employment Law

In last month’s newsletter, we made you aware of the planned introduction of parental bereavement leave and pay in April 2020. But what other changes are on the way? Here’s a quick summary of new laws coming into force on 6 April 2020:

·      Businesses will need to ensure that all employees and workers are provided with a written statement of their main terms and conditions by no later than their first day of work.  The range of information to be included in the statement will also be expanded.

·      The ‘Swedish derogation’ (a means by which employment agencies are currently able to avoid some of the implications of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010) is to be removed.

·      The period over which a week’s pay should be calculated for the purposes of the Working Time Regulation 1998 is to increase from 12 weeks to 52 weeks.

·      As mentioned in our August 2019 newsletter, the laws relating to personal service companies and the application of the ‘IR35’ regime are to change, with a greater risk of liabilities falling on the shoulder of the ‘client’ who purchases the services.

All in all, there’s quite a lot going on at the moment. Please contact us if you would like to discuss some or all of these changes in more detail.
