Legal Alert - December 2017

A monthly checklist from Atom Content Marketing highlighting new and pending laws, regulations, codes of practice and rulings that could have an impact on your business.

Case law: Workers can be asked to work 12 days between weekly 24-hour rest breaks

Employers can give employees their statutory 24-hour break in each seven-day period at any point within each such period, following an EU ruling. For example, they can give one at the beginning of a seven-day period and another at the end of the next seven-day period – with the effect that there are 12 days between two 24-hour rest periods.

Case law: Deliveroo riders are not workers with employment rights under trade union law

Employers should ensure they have clearly identified individuals who are 'workers' among their workforce, and those who are not. This is particularly so where individuals given a specific job are entitled to get someone else to do that job in their place, following a ruling that Deliveroo riders are not workers for the purposes of trade union law.

New law: Employers review Data Privacy Notices for employees as GDPR looms

Employers should identify who will need a Data Privacy Notices (DPN), determine what should be in them, and revisit their processes and procedures and staff training, to ensure the right individuals receive a DPN at the right time, in readiness for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
