Employment law changes 2017: eight priorities for HR
Significant employment law changes are anticipated for 2017, amid the ongoing uncertainty resulting from the Brexit referendum.
Large compliance projects for data protection and gender pay gap reporting will dominate the HR agenda in 2017. Employers are likely to see costs increase as the apprenticeship levy and additional fees for sponsoring foreign workers are introduced, and tax savings for employee benefits are significantly reduced.
Employers will also continue to deal with the implementation of restraints to public-sector exit payments and new trade union balloting rules in 2017.
