The Government’s achingly slow progress in implementing many of the key recommendations of the Taylor Review means that some of the proposals may be in danger of slipping from many employers’ radars. Indeed, a whole year has passed since the Government published its response to the Taylor Review (which itself was published in July 2017).
Employers should be aware that in that response, as part of its aim to increase ‘transparency of entitlement’, the Government committed to extending the right to receive a payslip to all workers and to require that employers state the hours being paid for on the payslips of all time-paid workers. This proposal had also been recommended by the Low Pay Commission, and accepted by the Government, back in 2016. It took until early 2018, however, to publish the relevant legislation (click here and here) and the changes are now due to come into force on 6 April 2019.
