There will also be changes to statutory holiday entitlement, the right to request flexible working and the enforcement of the National Minimum Wage.

Whether you are an employer or an employee, Vincent Duggleby and his panel of experts were here to answer any question you may have on these or other issues.

Vincent was joined by: Clive Howard, employment partner at Russell Jones Walker; Sian Keall, employment partner at Travers Smith and Sarah Veale, head of Equality and Employment Rights at the TUC.
