Hello and welcome to the third edition of HR insights of 2024!

Let’s explore the latest updates in employment laws that come into effect in early April and how your business can proactively prepare for these changes.

Employment law changes…the countdown is on!


It’s not long to go until a number of employment law changes are coming into effect from the 1st and 6th April 2024.

What employment law changes do employers need to be aware of?

  • Flexible working requests – Employment Relations (Flexible Working Bill)
  • Statutory Carers Leave
  • Protection from Redundancy (Pregnancy and Family Leave) Act 2023
  • Rolled up holiday pay for irregular hour workers – changes to holiday pay and EU retained law
  • Increase to national living wage
  • Several additional employment law updates are expected later in the year.

Do you require some HR support to implement these changes?
