Hot UK Employment Law Issues in 2024

March 2024
Region: Europe

2024 looks set to be a busy year on the employment law front, with a flurry of legislative changes coming into force in April 2024 and more developments likely over the next 12 to 18 months.

Watch our March Employment Law webinar recording to find out what should be on your to-do list over the next 12 months and what changes you may need to make to your employment documentation, including your practices and procedures.

We cover key developments, including:

  • Sexual harassment in the workplace – From Autumn 2024, employers will be under a new mandatory duty to take “reasonable steps” to prevent sexual harassment of employees in the course of their employment. We highlight what these changes are likely to mean for employers and the steps they should be taking to comply with this new duty.
  • Parents and carers – A number of new rights for parents and carers will be introduced in April 2024, together with changes to the flexible working regime. Find out what you must do to ensure you are compliant.
  • General election – With a general election due to take place later this year, we take a brief look at what a Labour government might mean for UK employment law.
  • Other employment law developments – There is potentially more happening on the legislative front over the next 12 to 18 months, including a new statutory right to request a predictable working pattern, and proposed reforms to noncompetition clauses.

We also share our predictions on the key employment law trends and themes for 2024 and discuss some key cases that may have practical implications for your business.
