Queen's Speech - Early indications

The ceremony of the Queen's Speech usually overshadows the nitty-gritty of what's really on the plans, but from what I've read, the 'employment headlines' are:

 - Some actions on executive pay.......unlikely to affect anyone on this Forum directly!

- Further adjustments to the workplace dispute processes which look to be introducing early/earlier conciliation in-house to avoid ET hearings etc subsequently. No bad thing at first sight, but may shift more burden ONTO employers?

- The Children & Families Bill loosens up some parental rights and introduces parental leave 'swapping' and earlier returns to work for Mothers.

The headline quote reads 'Legislation will be introduced to reduce burdens on business by repealing unnecessary legislation'.............I've been waiting 30 years for someone to do that!

Summary - keep an eye out for changes to the internal grievance procedure 'best practices'.......
