Updated to include information on new rules on holiday carry-over in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Updated to reflect that the holiday pay reference period has changed for workers without normal working hours, effective from 6 April 2020.
We round up our key content on April employment law changes.
Workers who have not taken all of their statutory annual leave entitlement this year due to the coronavirus will be able to carry it over into the next two leave years, the Government has announced.
We set out some possible scenarios related to absence and attendance that HR professionals may face during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, and explain how they could tackle them. Additional scenarios (added on 19 March) now cover an employee being unable to work because their child's school has closed or an elderly relative has fallen ill, and an employee due to return to work has been stranded abroad.
