Out with the old – annual updates to statutory rates come into effect

Out with the old – annual updates to statutory rates come into effect

By Ben Smtih - 30 April 2020

While coronavirus is – understandably – occupying lots of our attention right now, HR professionals should remember that the usual annual updates to statutory rates came into effect at the start of April.

* from 1 April 2020

All other updates came into effect from 6 April 2020.

Other changes to look out for from April include:

  • From 6 April, all workers now have the right to receive a written statement of particulars of employment. This right now accrues from day 1 of employment.
  • From 6 April, eligible employees will be entitled to statutory parental bereavement leave and pay.
