Sweeping changes come into effect in March 2019 under the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2018 which are primarily geared at casual and part-time employees.

At Sherlock Law we recommend you review contract and employment handbooks as soon as possible to consider any changes required to employment contracts and policies and procedures.

Time Pressure:  An employer is obliged to issue core terms to an employee within five days of work commencing.

In addition, an employee is entitled to understand what reasonable expectation they can have for hours of work, and whether those hours are banded or they are entitled to know what likely range of hours will be available.

A breach of these provisions can lead to not only WRC complaints but criminal prosecution.
