What are the Extended Protection and Rights for Employees?
To be confirmed
The government proposed an Employment Bill during the Queen’s Speech on 19 December 2019 which would seek to create a single enforcement body, introduce a right for workers to request more predictable contracts, provide further protection for employees who are pregnant or who are on/returning from maternity leave during a redundancy exercise, and to allow parents to take extended leave for neonatal care.
Subject to consultation, it had also been proposed to make flexible working the default unless an employer can evidence a good reason not to allow it.
