Draft Code of Practice on dismissal and re-engagement

Human resources
1. Draft Code of Practice on dismissal and re-engagement
2. Businesses can sign the Armed Forces Covenant

With a planned statutory code of practice, the UK Government aims to protect employees and crack down on employers that use controversial dismissal tactics.

The code, subject to a consultation first, will make it clear to employers that they must not use threats of dismissal to pressurise employees into accepting new terms, and that they should have honest and open-minded discussions with their employees and representatives.

This new statutory code of practice will set out employers’ responsibilities when seeking to change contractual terms and conditions of employment, including that businesses must consult with employees in a fair and transparent way when proposing changes to their employment terms.
