Keeping up with employment law
This factsheet outlines the major changes to employment legislation in 2015 and 2016. CIPD members can see fuller and more detailed information in the Employment Law at Work area of our website. It includes legal timetables, law FAQs, case law reports with implications for employers, and a latest news page which is updated weekly. There is also a six-monthly law update, written by CIPD Chief Examiner Stephen Taylor, intended primarily for tutors and students studying the employment law module of our qualifications but which HR practitioners may also find useful.
As regional governments continue to implement their own take on particular policies, the Scottish and Northern Ireland situation may differ from that in England and Wales. CIPD members can see our factsheet on the key employment law differences between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. See also the Useful contacts section below for more links.
