Highlight: Employment Law Reforms & The Beecroft Report
Jill Evans, Writing for People Management wrote an article recently about the Beecroft Report and its recommendations on parental leave. Sadly for the reformists, the Beecroft report recommends putting the parental leave reforms on hold.
Going one step further, the report also makes recommendations that would remove responsibility from employers in cases where staff are harassed by fellow employees or customers. This is being put through a consultation progress, with an update expected later in the year.
One to keep an eye on!
n.b. For those interested in Paternity Leave, Dave is in the process of writing a post detailing an employees rights. It should be ready in the next few days so watch this space.
