Boring but important

Last week, the Cabinet Office published the government's draft legislative programme for the forthcoming year.

Included is the Employment Simplification Bill, the contents of which cover:

  • implementation of the Gibbons review of workplace dispute resolution (including repeal of the statutory dispute resolution procedures and implementation of a package of replacement measures - although the content of that package is not yet known);
  • clarification and strengthening of the enforcement framework for the national minimum wage
  • various minor amendments to existing statutes

If you want to read the summary, click the link above and selection Chapter 5, item 10.
