Labour Party Plan Employment and HR Guide

It’s official, 4 July 2024 is the date for the General Election!

There has been much conjecture that Labour will win a landslide but the BBC has published articles on whether the results could translate to a hung parliament. This concern has been echoed by Alistair Campbell. One thing seems certain, a change of government. In the event that there is a new Labour Government, business owners need to consider the impact of a Labour Government on their HR and employment law practices. So what do we know so far?* *(Please note that all information herein are current proposals and correct at the time of creation – not certain changes)

Access our document below “The Labour Party plan for employment law and HR” based upon their Green Paper entitled “A new deal for working people”, recently rebranded as the “Plan to Make Work Pay”.

Please note that the Plan to Make Work Pay has provided additional details, for example, the three-month limitation period for Tribunal claims will be extended to 6 months, and the removal of compensation caps for unfair dismissal claims has been removed (they have not said what the new cap will be).
