Employment legislation updates are often made to account for new ways of working. A new law giving employees a right to request remote working is due to be in place by September 2021 for instance. To ensure your business operates in line with the law, you should review your employment contracts regularly.
Also, did you know that employees must be provided with a written statement of five core terms of employment within five days of starting a job? If you don’t give new employees their written ‘5 day’ statement within five days, a hefty fine could land on your desk.
