Summer Round-Up: Key Developments in UK Employment Law


As the summer months have come to an end, it’s time to take a closer look at the significant developments in UK employment law that have taken place during this period. At Aman Solicitors, we understand the importance of staying updated on the ever-evolving legal landscape, and we’re here to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the key changes and reforms that have transpired in the world of employment law.

Family-Friendly Rights:

One area of employment law that saw notable developments over the summer pertains to family-friendly rights. Employers and employees alike should be aware of these changes, which include adjustments to parental leave and flexible working arrangements. These changes are aimed at creating a more inclusive and supportive work environment, where employees can better balance their personal and professional lives.

Trade Unions and Sexual Harassment Reform:

In the realm of trade unions and sexual harassment reform, significant strides have been made to ensure that workers’ rights are protected and that workplaces are free from harassment. These reforms are part of a broader effort to promote fairness and equality in the workplace. Our solicitors are well-versed in these changes and can provide guidance on how they may affect your business or employment situation.

Worker Status and Industrial Action Rights:

Court and tribunal decisions during the summer have also clarified the test for worker status and industrial action rights. Understanding the legal framework surrounding worker status is crucial for both employers and employees, as it can impact employment rights and benefits. Likewise, staying informed about industrial action rights is essential for those involved in labor disputes or negotiations.

Treatment of Share Incentive Plan Rights after TUPE Transfers:

Another key area of development in UK employment law relates to the treatment of share incentive plan rights after TUPE transfers. Changes in ownership or business structures can have significant implications for employees’ benefits and entitlements. Our solicitors can provide expert advice on how these changes may affect you and your business.


While we typically expect employment law reform to progress slowly, this summer has proven to be an exception. The developments we’ve highlighted in family-friendly rights, trade unions, sexual harassment reform, worker status, industrial action rights, and share incentive plan rights after TUPE transfers underscore the need for ongoing vigilance and legal expertise in navigating the complexities of employment law.
