Course Overview

Commissioned by the government to review the way that people work and identify possible reforms to employment law, Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the RSA, published The Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices in the summer of 2017.

On 17 December 2018, the government published its response to the Review in the form of the ‘Good Work Plan’ which implements many of the reforms recommended in the Review.

Some of the proposals were implemented quite promptly for example the naming and shaming of employers who, having been ordered to pay out money by the Employment Tribunal, fail to do so, however a good number will be implemented on 6 April 2020.

Considered ‘one of the biggest shakeups in employment law in a generation’ the Good Work Plan will affect all businesses that employ people, use agency workers or subcontract labour.

As such, it is essential that employers, and those than advise them, are up to speed with these changes and appreciate the impact which they are likely to have.

Delivered by employment law and HR specialist Kathy Daniels, Associate Dean at Aston University, this 60-minute session will ensure that practitioners are understand and are able to prepare for the implementation of the Good Work Plan in April 2020.
