It has been a busy month for employment law developments. The Government has changed its approach to retained EU law and the sunset (or cliff edge) due at the end of 2023. Most employment law is retained but changes have been announced to working time rules and holiday pay. Acas published guidance on workplace adjustments for mental health, which Nick Hobden and Ashley Matthews discuss in our latest video. Also announced is a proposal to limit the length of non-compete clauses in employment contracts to three months. We cover all of this in this month’s Workplace Law.
If you have any questions about any of the topics raised in Workplace Law, please do get in touch.
