UK employment law news

Our news bulletins aim to highlight some of the most significant recent developments in UK employment law and practice. Colina Greenway is always happy to discuss the impact of these and other developments on particular client circumstances.

Increase in compensation limits for employment claims

The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2010 came into force on 1 February 2011, increasing the compensation available for a range of statutory employment rights where the date of breach falls on or after 1 February 2011.

Government consultation on resolving workplace disputes

The Coalition Government has launched a consultation on ways to encourage early resolution of workplace disputes. Although there is a clear agenda to cut the cost of running the employment tribunal service, which has seen significant rises in claims during the recession, the Government believes that changes to increase labour market flexibility will encourage employers to take on more staff, thereby stimulating the economy.
