Employment and Support Allowance (Consequential Provisions) (No.3) Regulations 2008 come into force

Implementation date: 27 October 2008

The Regulations make amendments to legislation as a result of the introduction of employment and support allowance, which replaces incapacity benefit and income support for new claimants. The amendments include treating employment and support allowance in the same way as short-term incapacity benefit when an employer calculates sick pay. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
