What is in Store for NI Employment Laws in 2015?Posted in : Supplementary Articles NI on 27 January 2015
With the Work and Families (Northern Ireland) Act 2015 receiving Royal Assent on 8th January 2015 perhaps the speedy tempo for employment law reform in Northern Ireland has been set for the next twelve months.
As local employment law commentators have predicted, the twin speed approach to reform will perhaps become the norm in this jurisdiction i.e. in relation to UK-wide reform initiatives they happen in GB well in advance of any local NI reforms. Indeed some areas of reform in GB will be in their second tranche in 2015 as we draft legislation on the first tranche, for example reforms to whistleblowing and employment tribunal protocols.
