Labour & European Law Review
17 January 2013
The most significant changes to employment law this year will be made by the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill (ERRB). This is currently going through Parliament and so is subject to amendment. The Bill is expected to pass into legislation in April.
Under proposals to reform civil litigation funding, claimants who enter into no win, no fee agreements will not be able to recover their success fee from the defendant and to compensate them, the level of general damages will be increased.
Under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE), there is a service provision change (SPC) when an organisation engages a contractor to provide a service on its behalf.
