Getting work right

In response to the Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices, the government released The Good Work Plan. This is reported to be the largest upgrade to employment rights in more than twenty years.

The purpose of The Good Work Plan is to implement workplace reforms that get work right for British businesses and those that work for them. Whilst there is a clear focus on increasing rights for ‘atypical’ workers, there are also changes that affect other employees of which to be aware.

Some employment law changes outlined in The Good Work Plan have already been implemented. For instance, increased redundancy protection for pregnant women and new parents; and itemised payslips for all workers. There are also now harsher penalties in place for employers who breach employment rights.
