Swedish derogation will end next year, government confirms
So-called ‘Swedish derogation’ rules governing the use of agency workers will come to an end next year, the government has confirmed, as it reasserted its intention to implement large portions of Matthew Taylor’s Good Work Plan employment reforms. Last week, parliament approved the first package of the Good Work Plan, including bringing into force an entitlement to a day one statement of rights detailing a new employee’s pay and holiday allowance.  This part of the plan, which came into effect on Saturday (6 April), means more than 300,000 workers who previously did not routinely receive a payslip will now do so, including those on casual or zero-hours contracts. Payslips now also need to state the number of hours worked, making it easier for workers to ensure they are paid in full and at the correct rate.
