what to expect from the Torys

 Show Interest
Now that the Conservatives have won the election I have attempted to show below their commitments in their manifesto around the area of employment. It is a lot less than if Labour had won but nevertheless you should be aware of what they have promised and be in a position to take steps to see how it will affect your business.

Employment rights in general
Create a single enforcement body to police abuses of employment laws.
Extend the entitlement to leave for unpaid carers to 1 week.
Employment status
Give workers the right to request a more predictable contract.
Independent contractors
Review how the self-employed can be better supported, for example by improving their access to finance and credit, making the tax system easier to navigate and improving broadband.
Review whether the reforms to the IR35 regime in the private sector are the right way forward.

Reduce the disability employment gap.
Action to protect people from assault or harassment on grounds of sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or disability.
