01Dec UK National Employment Seminar Series 2015 - Annual Review Liverpool DLA Piper is pleased to invite you to our UK Employment Seminar Series 2015. Our speakers are lawyers who have extensive practical experience in their field. These seminars are complimentary and CPD accredited. Breakfast or lunch will be provided prior to the start of the session. ==== Annual review 2015 has seen major employment law developments in the UK and 2016 is shaping up to be an equally challenging year in the HR arena. New legislation implemented over the last year has introduced shared parental leave, and the Government has now indicated that this may be extended to working grandparents in 2016. A ban on exclusivity clauses in zero hours contracts has been implemented and further enforcement provisions are expected. A controversial Trade Union Bill has also been introduced and is making its way through Parliament. The Modern Slavery Act 2015 has also received Royal Assent and will impose a requirement on certain businesses to publish an annual anti-slavery and human trafficking statement. The challenge to tribunal fees continues with not only the prospect of an appeal to the Supreme Court but also a Government review and a Select Committee inquiry. The Government has also consulted on mandatory gender pay gap reporting and its proposals are expected before the end of the year. Case law developments have also been significant in the last year with the Woolworths case finally reaching a conclusion in the ECJ, and the issues of holiday pay calculations and carry-over of holiday accrued during sickness absence again being considered in the courts. There have also been a couple of important cases interpreting the ‘public interest’ test in relation to protected disclosures for the purpose of whistleblowing.
