No appetite for major change to employment laws among UK businesses

Only five per cent of businesses are looking for major change in employment law post-Brexit, according to a survey.

However, the same research shows 65% of employers do want to see some change.

Other key findings of the survey, by GQ Employment Law, are:

• 71% of respondents said they would like rules allowing long-term sick employees to roll over their annual leave to be removed;

• 65% said they would like to see changes to discrimination and equal pay laws. Of those, a 28% minority would like to see a cap on discrimination and equal pay awards;

• 56% would like requirements to pay employees an amount for overtime during holiday to be reversed.

Paul Quain, partner at GQ Employment Law, commented: “Our survey backs the widely-reported view that business wants stability post-Brexit. While employers see Brexit as an opportunity for a review of EU employment law in some areas, in the main they are not looking for major change.

“The hope is likely to be that Brexit is seen as an opportunity to improve UK employment laws – making them as efficient, but also as fair, as possible to both employers and employees.”
