Employment Rights (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2019. SI 2019/731

In Force: 6 April 2019 , 6 April 2020 These Regulations: increase the maximum level of penalty available from £5,000 to £20,000 for aggravated breach of a worker's employment rights under the Employment Tribunals Act 1996 s.12A (Pt 2); confer the right to a written statement of particulars of employment and associated enforcement provisions upon all workers (currently this right applies only to employees) by amending the Employment Rights Act 1996 Pt 1 (Pts 3 and 5); and lower the percentage required for a valid employee request for the employer to negotiate an agreement on informing and consulting its employees (Pt 4). The threshold is lowered from 10% to 2% of the total number of employees employed by the employer. This is achieved by amending the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004. The 2004 Regulations impose obligations in respect of information and consultation on an employer with at least 50 employees if a sufficient percentage of its employees submit a valid request.
