Millions of workers will have a say over their working patterns as Workers (Predictable Terms and Conditions) Bill achieves Royal Assent.
Government-backed law gives all workers the legal right to request a predictable working pattern encouraging workers to begin conversations with their employers.
Follows a wave of wins for workers after a record National Minimum Wage uplift and boosts to employment protections for parents and unpaid carers.
This new law will support workers in many areas plus –
*Supporting employee parents of new-born babies who are admitted into neonatal care with up to 12 weeks
of paid neonatal care leave
*Requiring employers to ensure that all tips, gratuities, and service charges received are paid to workers in
*Offering pregnant women and new parents greater protection against redundancy
*Entitling employees who are also unpaid carers to a period of unpaid leave
*Providing millions of employees with a day one right to request flexible working, and a greater say over
when, where, and how they work
