Another set of regulations, this time in draft form, have been published with an anticipated implementation of 10 March 2018. If approved by Parliament, they provide that public sector employers (same definition as used under facility time above, save for no minimum employee number requirement) will only be able to make check-off deductions if the worker can pay subscriptions by other means (such as direct debit) and the union makes reasonable payments towards the employer’s costs for the deductions.
