Employment law matters in the care industry

Natasha Smith, a senior associate at CooperBurnett LLP, provides an update on changes 
in employment law

The beginning of any new year is the perfect time for employers to reflect on any workforce issues that may have arisen over the previous year, to review where their organisation currently stands, and to assess where they would like it to be in the coming year.

Unlike many other areas in the legal world, employment law changes rapidly, so it is important for employers to keep on top of the latest developments in legislation and decisions that are being made in the courts through what is known as 'case law'.

Traditionally, the key times of the year for changes to be made in employment law are in April and October. That said, this does not usually stop governments from making changes at other times across the year, especially in a year such as this, when an election is looming and politicians are keen to win votes.
