Springing Forward – Important Changes for Employers in April 2019
1st April 2019 by Robin Watson
There are two key changes which employers need to be aware of that will be in force from April 2019.
The first is that the annual rise to statutory employment pay, such as National Minimum Wage, sick and maternity pay come into force. See the rates HERE.
The second is that all workers and employees must receive a payslip and in some circumstances, show the hours worked. This is important as previously, it was only employees who had such a right. Guidance is HERE.
These changes are not only complicated, but risky if ignored or missed as claims can follow.
If you would like any advice on these changes, please contact Robin Watson on firstname.lastname@example.org, who specialises in Employment Law, and he will be happy to advise further on what they mean for you and how to implement the changes.
