April 2018 was an important time for businesses with changes to employment law coming into effect. The big change everyone is talking about is the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which come into force on the 25th May. For employers this means, among many other tasks, reviewing contracts and issuing employees with updated privacy notices. It’s a big job, but not the only change to look out for, here are five others.
- Gender pay gap reporting
- National Living Wage and minimum wage increases
- Change to statutory pay rates
- Taxation of termination payments
- Change to employment tribunal payouts
