Are your Employment Policies and Staff Handbook up to Date?
February 28, 2018
As a reminder, the States of Jersey are highly likely to bring into force the following changes in September this year:
• Disability discrimination; and
• Significant changes to family-friendly policies including maternity, paternity, adoption and flexible working requests.
In addition, the transition period for age discrimination comes to an end in September. Therefore, employers will need to consider their compulsory retirement age polices to ensure that they are compliant with the Law.
BCR Law can assist in drafting or reviewing policies, providing advice to employers and in providing training on all changes in the law.
As you will know, staff training is a good defense in the case of discrimination claims against the employer.
