A neon sign with the word "Change"

Employment law changes announced & Ignoring furlough led to an unfair redundancy dismissal

Important employment law changes & an interesting furlough case!

In this episode 206 of the podcast I bring you a run down of the proposed changes to employment law announced by the government on the 10th May 2023. The gift that keeps giving….covid and furlough employment cases.

In this episode of the podcast I cover:

  • The change announced in regard to the sunset bill.
  • The fact that EU laws will be retained unless specifically revoked (for the time being at least).
  • Some welcome changes to working time rules.
  • Changes to holiday pay and calculations.
  • Changes to TUPE transfer requirements.
  • Making non-compete clauses post-termination no longer than 3 months.
  • The decision of the Employment Appeal tribunal in the case of Lovingangels Care Ltd v Mhindurwa where furlough was not considered as an alternative to redundancy.
