Personnel Today published an article on 26 April 2013 written by John Ecclestone reporting that "Government announces employment law changes and new Act".

The article goes on to say that "The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill received Royal Assent on 25 April 2013 making it the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 and opening the door for a number of employment law changes".

If further adds that "The new Act will bring about key changes to employment law and tribunal procedures some of which will come into force as early as June 2013. These include an amendment to the Employment Writes Act 1996 which will mean whistleblowing disclosures will not be protected unless the employee believes they are in the public interest as well as changes to the "good faith" requirements relating to whistleblowing disclosures."

The article also reports that "From June 2013 the two-year qualifying period for unfair dismissal claims will no longer apply where the reason for the dismissal is the employee’s political opinions or affiliation. The Government confirmed that provisions in the Act simplifying the procedures and costs of deciding tribunal cases will come into force on 25 June 2013."

? A repeal of a section of the Equality act 2010 which makes an employer liable where an individual is harassed by a third-party
? The addition of ‘caste’ to the definition of ‘race’ to the Equality Act 2010
? Tribunals hearing an unfair dismissal claim will be unable to take into account discussions between an employer and an employee or an offer made prior to the termination of employment with the aim of ending the contract of agreed terms.
