Whilst we hope that this will see the number of tribunal claims start to drop, employers should be mindful that employees don’t turn their complaints into discrimination based claims as this still doesn’t requires any minimum service condition at all.
One thing which is far from positive is the introduction of the new pension’s auto-enrolment rules in October. This is still an area of confusion for many employers and we are now less than 6 months away from the rules coming into force ; If you aren’t sure how this affects you or your teams, please contact one of our Employment Law specialists today for free guidance.
No doubt there will be more changes happening as we work through 2012 so we will use this blog space to help keep you out of the dark. There are more changes than just the two referred to above, so for more information please view our Legal Update April 2012.
