Government announces next stage of employment law review

The Government has announced that the next stage of its employment law review will focus on collective redundancy consultation periods, the Transfer Undertakings Protection of Employment Regulations (TUPE) and compensation for discrimination awarded by employment tribunals.

 

The ongoing review is an important part of the Government's plans to deliver growth by breaking down barriers, boosting opportunities and creating the right conditions for businesses to start up and thrive.

 

Employment Relations Minister Edward Davey said: “We will be looking carefully at the arguments for reform. Fairness for individuals will not be compromised – but where we can make legislation easier to understand, improve efficiency and reduce unnecessary bureaucracy we will.”

 

The Government will start reviewing these areas this year. It wants to ensure that the regulations are fit for purpose, and legislation will not necessarily be the route to implement any change if there is a case for reform.

 

The Government has also announced that it will shortly begin consulting on plans to extend the right to request flexible working to all employees and introduce a new system of shared parental leave from 2015 – to make it easier for parents to work whilst bringing up a family.
