The Good Work Plan – Are you ready?

During December 2018 the Government announced a set of reforms which they intended to introduce as part of the Taylor Review. The Taylor Review being a review of modern working practices undertaken by Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Arts, and is also known as the Good Work Plan.

A copy of the review can be accessed via means of the following link;

The key proposals of the Good Work Plan are set to become law and will be implemented as from April 2020 as part of the Employment Rights (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2019. Therefore, employers should be aware of areas of change which include the following, and have made arrangements in time to comply;

The above list is not exhaustive, and it seems other items will be added potentially in time for the April 2020 implementation date. Such potential change may include further changes in the law including extending redundancy protection for pregnant women and new parents. Such potential change is possible followinga consultation period by the Government in line with the Good Work Plan which closed in May 2019. Further outcome from this consultation is awaited.

For further advice in implementing the above changes including making changes to employment documents such as contracts and employee handbooks please do not hesitate to contact Atom HR.
