New Year, New Employment Laws: Key Changes to be Aware of in 2024



2024 is finally upon us, and the employment landscape is set to undergo significant transformations. For business owners, HR professionals, and practice managers, staying ahead of the curve is not just advisable – it's essential. 


To guide you through the maze of new employment laws, we're thrilled to present our upcoming webinar, "New Year, New Employment Laws: Key Changes to be Aware of in 2024.” 


Hosted by our legal experts Sarah Buxton, Elizabeth Last, and Jessica Rogers, this webinar promises valuable insights into crucial aspects that will shape the employment landscape this year, such as: 


The hike in minimum wage

The largest ever increase in National Minimum Wage will take place from 1st April 2024. We’ll run through the increases so you can prepare yourself for increased employment costs.


Flexible working

From 6 April 2024, employees will no longer be required to have 26 weeks’ service to request flexible working. This is just one of three changes to flexible working laws that we’ll explore in our webinar. 


Carer’s leave

Dependants will be entitled to take more carer’s leave per year. We will run through the specifics of this employment law change, explaining how it affects you and your employees. 


Holiday entitlement

Some of these laws have already taken effect; for example, from 1st January your compliance requirements around Working Time Regulations have changed - as have rules around carry-over holidays. On the horizon, there will also be changes to holiday entitlement and pay calculations for irregular hours or part-year workers. 


Harassment

October will bring new legislation around the prevention of sexual harassment, an employment law change which is vital that you’re aware of. 


Neonatal care leave 

This legislation is a little further off; around April 2025, there will be changes to the statutory rights of parents whose babies require neonatal care. 


Change to redundancy

This change, coming into force on 6th April 2024, will be aimed at protecting employees who are pregnant or on leave, whether it be maternity, adoption, or shared parental.
