Now that the dust has settled after the recent election, what does the Labour parliamentary majority mean for the employment law landscape?
Unsurprisingly, Labour’s Workplace Relations and Safety election manifesto was very employee centric with a heavy focus on support for workers which obviously resonated with its traditional base. As such, it is safe to assume that over the course of this parliamentary term, we will see quite an overhaul of our current employment laws.
So, what can we expect to see over the next three years?
This was an unprecedented election result which reflects the unprecedented time that we now live in. It allows the Labour Party the opportunity to implement far reaching changes across many different areas of life and undoubtedly the rights of workers will be at the forefront of many of these changes.
