Seminar Overview

In 2023, we saw a myriad of workplace and employment law developments being introduced by the government and 2024 is set to be a year of continued developments in employment law.

This seminar will outline all recent and upcoming developments and changes in 2024 that both employers and employees should be aware of regarding current employment legislation and protection in the workplace and how it applies to them.

Our legal trainer will be outlining what changes have both come into effect and are due to come into effect and will also outline the practical applications (for example, applying for remote working) and protections in place for both employers and employees alike.

There will also be relevant case law examples discussed.


Updates for Discussion to include:

Remote and flexible working arrangements

Since 7 March 2024, all employees have a new legal right to request remote working.

Under the Work Life Balance and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2023, employers and employees can make and consider requests for flexible or remote working under the WRC code of practice which will set out practical guidance for employers and employees when it comes to requesting remote or flexible work.

There will be an obligation on the employer to consider both their needs and the needs of employees when assessing a request.

A complaint can be taken to the WRC where an employer has not complied with the code.

Statutory Sick Pay 

Since 1 January 2024, all employees now have the right to 5 days’ sick pay a year (increased from 3 -5 days in 2024) under the Sick Leave Act 2022. This is called statutory sick pay (that means the legal minimum)

The entitlement is due to rise incrementally to five days in 2024, seven days in 2025 and eventually 10 days in 2026.

Increased in Parent’s Leave 

In Budget 2024, it was announced that parent’s leave would be extended by two weeks, totalling nine weeks altogether. Employers can expect this due to take effect in August 2024.



All delegates will receive a CPD certificate (3.5 hours) for their CPD training portfolio.
