1. Brexit. The UK’s vote to leave the EU, on 23 June 2016, surprised many, including commentators, the political establishment and businesses alike. Questions about how and in what way the UK will disentangle itself from the EU still remain.
2. General Data Protection Regulation. The General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”) was finally agreed after many years of controversy, negotiation and wrangling.
3. Privacy Shield. In other data privacy developments, the replacement for Safe Harbor, the EU-US Privacy Shield, came into force on 1 August 2016. It includes obligations on companies handling data, safeguards and transparency obligations on U.S. Government access, protection of individual rights.
4. On-Demand Economy. One of the hottest topics in 2017 will be the “gig” economy and what rights those in it should have. This is increasingly an issue as a record number of people in the UK are now self-employed (4.79 million, July-August 2016) and there are a significant number individuals employed on a temporary basis (1.66 million).
5. Gender Pay Gap. Further to this client alert from April, and as recently reported in this blog post, the Equality Act 2010(Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 (the “Regulations”) will come into force in April 2017.
6. Holiday Pay. The long running saga of how commission and overtime should be dealt with when calculating holiday pay has continued in 2016 and looks set to continue in 2017.
7. Modern Slavery Act. The Modern Slavery Act came into force on 29 October 2015. One of the key provisions was s54(1). This requires organizations, who are incorporated in the UK or carry on business in the UK (regardless of where they were located), with an annual global turnover in excess of £36 million to publish a statement on the their website setting out the steps they are taking or have taken during the fiscal year to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in their supply chain, or in any part of their business.
8. Taxation of Termination Payments. We expect draft legislation to come into force in relation to revised rules for the taxation of termination payments, such that the changes will come into place in April 2018.
9. Whistleblowing Cases. In the context of whistleblowing, there were a number of decisions that provided food for thought, including the decision of Royal Mail Group Limited v Jhuti (UKEAT/0020/16) which looked at what knowledge the decision-maker who dismissed an employee who had made protected disclosures to others within the business could be imputed as having.
10. Trade Union Act. The Trade Union Act 2016 became law in May 2016 but the main changes, making balloting requirements for lawful industrial action for certain public services more stringent, will come into force on 1 March 2017.
