Autumn 2021

As regular readers of this update will be aware, the Covid crisis over the last couple of years has had two major impacts on UK employment law.  Firstly, it has created whole new areas of advice, for example in understanding the intricacies of furlough, interpreting the ever-changing guidance for employers during the crisis and in dealing with long Covid.  Secondly, however, it has absorbed all the Government’s time and has led to the statute books being relatively quiet.  There is no change to that this season, so we are looking at some case law updates. 

It is expected (but not certain) that 2022 could be a busy year in employment law with many of the Government’s planned changes to employment law finally going through Parliament.  We will cover the 2022 outlook in the next update.
