The Government’s proposed legislation following the Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices.

by Apr 23, 2019News & Updates

The proposed new legislation will:

  • close a loophole by repealing the Swedish derogation – which currently allows agency workers to be employed on cheaper rates than permanent counterparts
  • extend the right to a day one written statement of rights to workers, going further to include detail on rights such as eligibility for sick leave and pay and details of other types of paid leave, such as maternity and paternity leave
  • quadruple maximum employment tribunal fines for employers who are demonstrated to have shown malice, spite or gross oversight from £5,000 to £20,000
  • extend the holiday pay reference period from 12 to 52 weeks, ensuring those in seasonal or atypical roles get the paid time off they are entitled to
  • lower the threshold required for a request to set up Information and Consultation arrangements from 10% to 2%
  • the government is also committing to legislate to improve the clarity of the employment status tests to reflect the reality of the modern working relationships.
