These include changes to TUPE in January; the introduction of mandatory pre-claim conciliation and employer fines in April; the extension of the right to request flexible working in the spring; compulsory equal-pay audits for employers who lose pay discrimination claims; and further detail about how the new shared parental leave right will operate.
