Changes come into force in April 2020

Several reforms under the Good Work Plan are due to come into effect in April 2020 which will bring new obligations for employers.

The plan introduces several changes to the right to receive a written statement of main terms (SMT) with effect from 6 April 2020. This document includes all the employee’s key terms of employment including pay and annual leave entitlement, and employers currently have two months to provide it to a new employee. This grace period will be removed, meaning the SMT will have to be given to the employee no later than the commencement of employment.

Do you understand all the new obligations?  For further guidance on the Good Work Plan, or wider HR support, call our dedicated member support line on 0800 055 6496.
