Election 2015

The result of the general election on 7 May 2015 will determine the direction of employment law and HR practice in the coming years, with the parties making varying pledges on, for example, zero hours contracts, the national minimum wage, apprentices, industrial action and employment tribunal fees.

But the election could also have an impact on workplaces before 7 May, if conflicting political views cause friction between colleagues. Our FAQs and model policy on political activity can help employers find the right balance between allowing employees to exercise their right to free expression and avoiding disruption and offence to colleagues and customers.
