THE YEAR AHEAD: What to expect in 2018

01 December 2017  

Matthew Towers and Emily Skinner outline the key developments that employers and their advisers should prepare for in the next 12 months

After last year’s landmark Brexit vote, 2017 has been a year of consolidation and preparation. We now know (vaguely) the proposed legal effect of Brexit on day one and can expect far more significant changes post-Brexit than in the upcoming year. Yet the world keeps turning and the law keeps developing with it. In 2018, we should see reforms to respond to the gig economy after the Taylor review, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force and family rights and gender pay gap reporting will continue to evolve.
