On April 6th, 2020 the UK laws relating to employment rights are changing.
The new legislation is stripping away the two-month period that employers currently enjoy to issue new starters with a written statement of employment particulars, such as a contract and offer letter.
It has been described as the biggest change to UK employment law for the past 20 years and it all kicks in on April 6th, 2020.
So what exactly is the â€˜Good Work Planâ€™ and what can HR and hiring teams do to make sure theyâ€™re ready for this employment legislation overhaul?
The majority of HR teams still rely on emails, paper documents and spreadsheets to process their new hires.
Itâ€™s an approach that means it will typically take days or weeks to complete all of the paperwork thatâ€™s required before an incoming employee can start.
