Consultation on Commencement Dates

  • Posted

The government has issued a consultation document in response to the recommendation of the Better Regulation Taskforce that commencement dates for employment legislation should be harmonised so as to have just one or two 'implementation dates' each year (see bulletins dated 6/8/02 and 16/5/02). Presumably the DTI misses the irony of its issuing a consultation document to discuss reducing red tape!

Also, the DTI has published two more guides to the law (and these are quite excellent): one dealing with whistleblowing, the other with rights to notice and reasons for dismissal.
