The UK Government has recently announced the first in a series of upcoming regulatory reform packages proposed following the UK’s departure from the EU.

Employment law is the first area to be addressed with the following changes being announced:

- A reduction to the Working Time Regulations’ reporting requirements as follows:

  • Removing the requirement for employers to keep records of working hours; and
  • Holiday pay:
    • Merging ‘normal’ holiday (4 weeks) and ‘additional’ holiday (1.6 weeks) to create one statutory leave entitlement of 5.6 weeks per year. We wait to discover whether there will also be a change to the method of calculating holiday pay; and
    • Permitting ‘rolled-up’ holiday pay
