Employment law changes, 2017

Looking ahead to 2017, among the year's main employment law changes will be the implementation of the gender pay gap reporting duty and the introduction of the apprenticeship levy. We round up what employers need to look out for, including across the board increases to statutory rates.

Notable case law decisions are expected on employment status, equal pay and employment tribunal fees.

We also round up Government consultations that are likely to lead to future employment law changes, we set out the dates of bank holidays and religious festivals in 2017, and provide pay forecasts for the upcoming year.
