Are you responsible for staff? Up-to-date with employment law?


The main changes to employment law, which come into effect on 6 April, include:

* Statutory increases to maternity pay, ordinary and additional paternity pay, and statutory adoption pay rates. The new pay rates have increased from £136.78 to £138.18.

* Employees with grievances are now initially required to lodge the details of their proposed tribunal with ACAS (the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service). ACAS will then have up to one month to achieve a settlement between the claimant and employer. If no settlement is achieved, a formal tribunal claim can proceed.
