The 6th April 2020 will see the introduction of the Good Work Plan legislation, this is a result of the Taylor review  which was undertaken to support the government’s commitment to ensure the UK labour market remains successful and competitive, especially now the UK has left the EU.

There will be a number of employment law changes coming as part of the Good Work Plan legislation that will affect business owners. The key changes included within the Good Work Plan are:

  1. Day 1 Right – workers and employees will have the right to receive a basic written employment contract from day 1 of their employment (this was previously 2 months), the penalty for failure to do this is up to £20,000
  2. Change of average week’s pay calculation – The calculation period for an ‘average week’s pay’ has changed from 12 weeks to 52 weeks
  3. Agency worker rights – After 12 weeks service all agency workers will have the right to receive the same pay and basic employment terms as comparable employees within your setting.

One key area to focus on as part the Good Work Plan legislation is employment contracts. There are a few changes which could have a financial impact, in terms of tribunal awards, should they not meet the newly revised criteria.
