Draft Deregulation Bill published

by Laurie Anstis on July 1, 2013

The government have today published their Deregulation Bill.

As anticipated in the Queen’s Speech, clause 2 of the Deregulation Bill removes the power for an employment tribunal to make so-called “wider recommendations” as a remedy for a successful discrimination claim. The power to make recommendations limited to the position of the specific complainant remains.

Clause 3 and Schedule 1 make changes to the statutory regime for “approved English apprenticeships”.

I first heard of this from Doug Pyper in Twitter.
