To mark the year’s turning point, we have identified a top 10 of core employment law topics and summarised what has happened to them in 2013 which is likely to be of continuing significance for employers.  We also get out our crystal ball and look at what is likely to change in the course of 2014.

The key topics included in our briefing which we recommend that universities and colleges should keep track of in 2014 are:

  • How to take advantage of the changes to TUPE which will apply from 31 January 2014.
  • In relation to Employment Tribunal claims, the launch of ACAS’ compulsory pre-issue conciliation scheme in April.
  • The final stages of the overhaul of family friendly rights, including the extension of the right for staff to request flexible working and the final planning for the ambitious new legislation providing for shared parental leave.

The briefing is available on our website here.
