Good Work Plan for nurseries

Employment law reforms your nursery needs to know about

Have you heard of the Good Work Plan yet? It was set to affect almost every business in the country when its policies came into force on 6 April 2020.

What is the Good Work Plan?

Dubbed ‘one of the biggest shake ups of employment law in a generation’ The Good Work Plan came about as a result of an independent review, known as the Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices in July 2017.

Most of the 53 recommendations put forward in the Taylor review were accepted in principle by the government. This resulted in a number of consultations on how these proposals could be successfully implemented. This culminated in the government’s Good Work Plan, which they claimed is their ‘vision for the future of the UK labour market.’

What changes have already been made?

Back in April 2019 the Government introduced the following:

  • The right to a payslip has been extended to cover all workers – as well as employees
  • Payslips must now outline hours worked for hourly-paid
  • An increase in the maximum penalty for ‘aggravated breaches of employment law’
