The Employment Law 2019 Horizon: top 12 hot topics

1. Family friendly. Shared parental leave pay. Where employers offer enhanced contractual maternity pay to mothers, can they only offer statutory shared parental leave (ShPL) pay to fathers?
2. Sexual harassment. Code of practice & consultations. The issue of sexual harassment in the workplace continues to attract headlines and the attention of the House of Commons' Women and Equalities Committee.
3. Employment status. New statutory test. Like last year and the year before, determining worker status in modern workplaces will continue to be a hot topic in 2019.
4. Pay reporting. Gender pay gap reporting. Last year saw the publication of the first mandatory gender pay gap reports. The Government Equalities Office (GEO) summary of the 2017/18 gender pay gap (GPG) data showed that while 57% of employers have more women than men among their lowest paid employees, only 33% have more women than men among their highest paid employees.
5. Whistleblowing. Deemed knowledge. Where an employee is dismissed, it will be automatically unfair if the principal reason for the decision to dismiss was that they made a protected public interest disclosure.
6. Wages. Sleep-in shifts. In one of the most controversial employment law cases of 2018, Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake, the Court of Appeal overturned numerous EAT judgments to rule that the only time that counts for national minimum wage (NMW) purposes during sleep-in shifts is the time when the worker is required to be awake for the purpose of working (Sleeping on the job take two: National minimum wage and 'sleep-in' shifts).
7. Holiday pay calculation. Atypical workers short-cut. Working out holiday entitlement for term time only workers, casual and zero hour workers can often prove to be an administrative headache.
8. Atypical workers. Payslips & Particulars of employment. 2019 will see the start of some statutory protections currently limited to those classed as 'employees' extended (and strengthened) to the wider category of 'workers'
9. Disciplinary proceedings. Suspensions. Is suspension of an employee pending investigation into an incident a neutral act or can it amount to a breach of the implied duty of mutual trust and confidence, entitling the employee to claim constructive unfair dismissal?
10. Industrial relations. Unlawful inducements. Trade union legislation makes it unlawful for employers to offer incentives to workers to influence their relationship with unions, for example by paying them to refrain from joining a union.
