The Government has announced its plans to reform Employment Law.

The proposals which the Government has described as “the most radical reform to the Employment Law System for decades” include changes on Unfair Dismissal, Compromise Agreements, Protected Conversations, Mediation and early concilliation, Tribunal modernisation, Financial Penalties and introducing a more rapid resolution to deal with lower value claims such as Holiday Pay.

Vince Cable (Business Secretary) further announced possible reforms in areas such as Maternity Leave, National Minimum Wage legislation, Whistleblowing, Collective Redundancies and TUPE.

Whatever the Government decide to do you can be safe in the knowledge that Carr & Co will keep you updated on any reforms that are to be implemented.
