Many proposed employment law changes that the Government has put forward in the last few years have stalled, mainly as a result of the focus on Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic. Which proposals could be resurrected in 2021 and what would they mean for employers?
The Government has confirmed that it is going ahead with major changes to the duty on large employers to publish an annual modern slavery statement. What changes will employers have to make to the content of, and process for publishing, their statement and which additional employers will be covered?
Large employers are expected to publish their annual modern slavery statement within six months of the end of the financial year, meaning that organisations with a financial year of 1 April to 31 March should publish their statement no later than the end of September each year. What do you have to consider when writing a modern slavery statement, how should it be structured and what can it contain?
