Introduction to Newsletter 27.01.10Wednesday, January 27th, 2010
Two new sets of Regulations have been published over the past week, namely the Agency Workers Regulations 2010, which will require agency workers to be treated effectively as employees for the purpose of employment benefits, and a series of Additional Paternity Leave Regulations, which will allow fathers and adoptive parents to take up to a half of their partner’s maternity or adoption leave entitlements. Both provide a long preparatory period. We will be covering the Regulations in more detail when we have had time to check them over in more detail.
Our Employer FAQ this week is entirely new and based on a question and answer about salary sacrifice schemes that appeared recently in the PayPerShop Forum. What do you do when some employees want to participate in a salary sacrifice scheme but they don’t or can’t meet the statutory conditions for the tax and NICs exemption?
