New laws in force from 25 June 2013

CODE: GREEN

The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 has received Royal Assent and the following will come into force on 25th June 2013:

1.    The new Employment Tribunal rules (unfortunately a final version is not yet available and we will report further when we are notified of this)

2.    Certain changes to whistleblowing legislation e.g. removing the requirement that the whistleblowing disclosure must be in good faith.

3.    Removal of a service requirement (currently 2 years) for unfair dismissal claims where the main reason for dismissal is the employee’s political opinions or affiliations.

There are other provisions within the Enterpriseand Regulatory Reform Act 2013 that we are awaiting commencement dates for such as the provisions requiring parties to consider early conciliation through ACAS before a claim is made.

For further information please contact a member of our employment team or call 01737 854 500 or email [email protected]
