News 27 September - 4 October 2019

Published 04 October 2019

This week we take a cursory look at some changes on the employment law horizon and also how ‘striking for the climate’ is affecting employee relations.  The usual biennial changes in Employment Law every April & October are upon us and the ELAS Group have very kindly outlined the most important components for employers’ consideration.(1)  In addition, in April 2020 the long awaited Good Work Plan comes into force and what has been dubbed as ‘The Biggest Overhaul in Employment Law in 2020’ is broken down here.(2)  

On a slightly different note the annual Employment Tribunal statistics have been recently published by the Department of Justice.  The total number applications has continued to rise as expected fol-lowing the abolition of application fees, but are still a longway short of the number of applications before fees were first introduced.  For more detail see here.(3)    Lastly, as momentum for action to address the Climate Crisis builds, activists have turned to ‘strike action’ amongst other strategies.  But what are the implications for workers who ‘strike for the climate’? In order for a strike to be lawful must meet certain legal requirements least of all that they are addressing a ‘trade dispute’.  Just another twist in the excruciating philosophical chess match that this thorny issue has (unneces-sarily) become.  For detail see here.(4)
