  • Comprehensive coverage of Brexit legislation that has been implemented now that the UK has formally exited the European Union;
  • Legislation generated to deal with the COVID 19 pandemic;
  • Substantial amendments to the Employment Tribunals Rules of Procedure;
  • Extended coverage to include the legislation on criminal record checks for new and prospective employees.

Preface

The emergency legislation, Treasury Directions and Practice Directions generated by the Covid 19 lockdown of March 2020 were the main focus of changes in last year’s edition of the Handbook. It was impossible to predict with confidence at that time whether the temporary provisions thus introduced would still be relevant a year later; but sadly, that has proved to be the case. The Coronavirus Act 2020 is still in force (albeit one of the provisions of that Act most relevant to employment law, on emergency volunteering leave, has still not, as of early June 2021, been brought into force, and will probably now never be). Also still in force are various amendments to the Regulations on statutory sick pay, and the successors to the original Treasury Directions specifying the terms of the Coronavirus Job Release Scheme and the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme. These have all been updated to include the current provisions. It can only be hoped that it will not be necessary to cover this ground again in a year’s time.
