Repeal of retained EU employment laws

The government has introduced a bill to remove specific EU laws. The repeal bill could impact collective consultation requirements, TUPE, maternity and parental protections, working time and agency worker regulations. At this stage, it’s impossible to say what will change (if at all). Expect the detail in the coming months.

Gender pay gap growth post-pandemic

The gender pay gap for full-time employees has grown to 8.3% post-pandemic, up from 7.7% a year prior. The Office for National Statistics has suggested that these figures are likely still feeling the effects of the pandemic and a “longer-term” view should be taken. Thinking about recruitment long-term? It’s said 60% would not apply for roles where a pay gap exists.
