Based on the volume and nature of calls to its legal helping, employment law is by far the most troubling and complex area of concern for UK organisations.
This has been largely driven by two major changes to the law this month – the scrapping of the default retirement age and the introduction of Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), which were both implemented on October 1st.
Overall, 65 per cent of calls received during the period were queries about employment law, noted Phil Orford, chief executive of the FPB.
"While the burdens of employment law remain in place, keeping up with the changes and putting in place watertight procedures should remain a key priority. It is important to know your responsibilities – and act accordingly so you don't fall foul of the law," he added.
Recently, a study by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation found that the demand for agency workers in the UK is robust at the moment, with companies committed to taking on temporary staff following the introduction of AWR.
