Employment Law under the New Coalition Government



The Coalition Government has stated that it will end the “gold-plating” of EU rules, so that British businesses are not disadvantaged relative to their European competitors. This may mean regulations (such as the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (“TUPE”)), which go beyond what is required by their EU Directives, face amendment. It also suggests that the impact of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 may be limited. In line with this approach, David Cameron has also pledged in the Queen’s Speech yesterday, that through the introduction of a European Union Bill no further powers will be transferred to the EU without a referendum.

Both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats featured various employment law issues in their manifestos. In the full article we discuss some of these issues and how they have been addressed, if at all, in the Coalition Agreement. Most notably absent from the Coalition Agreement is any discussion of the Equality Act and regulations affecting agency workers.
