Employment Relations and Holidays Act

Date: 27th April 2011

Changes to the Employment Relations Act 2000 and the Holidays Act 2003 were passed by Parliament in November 2010. Most changes for both Acts came into force 1 April 2011.

The legislation introduces a wide range of changes, many of which will affect our employer clients. Some of the changes make employer life simpler, some spell out what should already be best practice, and others will invariably add to the administrative burden of employing staff.
