Motor Industry - Employment Law Bulletin
Legal Updates for the Retail Motor Industry
In our Winter update, we covered some of the key developments planned for 2019. April saw National Minimum Wage increases, gender pay gap reporting obligations for private sector employers, the introduction of itemised payslips for all workers and increases to SSP and SMP. There has actually been relatively little headline employment law legislation this Spring and accordingly (as we are all bored of the “B” word) we are going to look at recent case law in this update.
In this seasons update, whilst many of our clients continue to wrestle with the introduction of the GDPR and drafting continues apace, we have decided in this update to review some recent case law updates, including the recent high publicity Supreme Court decision in the case of Pimlico Plumbers v Smith which will have wide ranging implications for employers, particularly those reliant on subcontracting.
Those of you who read the Winter bulletin will know that April has been (as is often the case) a busy month in employment law. We have seen increases to the national minimum wage rates, the gender pay gap reporting obligations biting for private sector employers and a change to the taxation of termination payments.
There are several legislative developments on the horizon this winter which we report below. There have also been some interesting case law developments, some of which are welcome for employers (see below Bellman and Herry) some more worrying (see Wyatt and Grosset).
