Employment Legislation Updates 2014
Burnetts' employment law solicitors provide an update on the latest legislation coming coming into force during 2014.
Employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations (HSIER) to display the approved Health and Safety poster in a prominent position in each workplace or to provide each worker with a copy of the approved leaflet outlining British health and safety law. Copies of the relevant posters and the leaflets are available from the Health and Safety Executive Website – http://www.hse.gov.uk
Although the posters/leaflets haven’t been updated since 2009, the deadline to change the posters/leaflets to the ‘new’ version is running out. The 1999 poster or leaflet must be replaced with the 2009 poster or leaflet no later than 5 April 2014. If you are still displaying the old poster/leaflet after that date then you will not be compliant with Health and Safety law.
For further information or advice on health and safety, contact James Johnston on 01228 552222 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
