Welcome to 2020!
2019 was supposed to be a quiet year for HR professionals and employment lawyers. That’s not quite how it turned out and 2020 looks like it will keep everyone who deals with HR busy.
Whilst there was not a huge amount of new legislation to grapple with, the courts were extra busy and gave lots of existing laws and established decisions a shake-up – including pay, employee and worker, issues faced when suspending someone, discrimination in the workplace especially sex, parental leave and perceived disabilities as well as when employers can be liable for the actions of their staff. There was no let-up for employers when it came to holiday pay – two changes in the law will affect everyone.
As for protecting your business against a competing ex-employee, a 99-year-old case was turned on its head.
2020 is going to be a busy year, even without the new government’s plans for enhanced workers’ rights and a new enforcement body, there will be changes to the tax treatment of off-payroll working (IR35) and termination payments, holiday pay (again), bereavement leave and contracts for every new starter – including workers from day one.
To help support our clients, we have teamed up with specialist employment law solicitors, McCabe and Co to offer a FREE briefing to help prepare you for the changes in 2020 as well as some you may have missed in 2019. It is an invaluable opportunity to have your questions answered by an expert with a wealth of employment law experience.
