2018 is proving to be a landmark year for employment law. We’ve already seen:
- Gender pay gap reports for the first time for many employers
- Increasing volumes in tribunal claims and rising awards
- The Gig economy cases and the Taylor review
- Issues around employee surveillance and privacy
- Compensation guidance for injury to feelings in discrimination cases
And we are not even half way through the year …
With the future of UK employment law after Brexit still hard to predict and this month’s introduction of a massive new piece of legislation from the EU around data protection – GDPR – to say that HR teams have much to grapple with is an understatement.
Help is at hand in this, the second of our free Learning Bites, a new series of informative webinars from Watson Martin Partnership. Here we ask the opinion of our ‘legal eagle’ Melinda Allison on the latest updates in employment law and the issues that HR professionals need to be aware of in the coming months.
