Employment law changes are like London buses, none come along and then…quite a few do!
Yesterday, Kemi Badenoch, Secretary of State for Department for Business and Trade, announced that there will be amendments to the EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill. The Bill will no longer include a ‘Sunset clause’ which would have seen around 4000 retained laws disappearing at the end of the year unless the Government took positive action to keep them. Instead, there will be a list of the EU laws that the Government intend to revoke at the end of 2023.
In a Policy paper issued yesterday, the Government set out its intention to make some changes to employment law following the UK’s departure from the EU.
