What UK Employers Can Expect Under the New Labour Government

With the Labour Party now in office, they intend to introduce new employment legislation in Parliament within 100 days, which will significantly impact private households.

The proposed legislation, expected by 11th October 2024, focuses on creating a more employee-friendly working environment. Key changes include the introduction of a right to ‘disconnect,’ enhanced flexible working rights, the ability to file unfair dismissal claims from day one, and extended claim periods.

In addition to these changes, there are already planned updates to confidentiality provisions in contracts, duties to prevent workplace harassment, and adjustments to immigration policies. It is crucial for employers to remain proactive in understanding and adapting to these new laws.
