The Employment Rights Act was proclaimed in 2013 following extensive tripartite consultation. It confers on persons new employment rights, which include, among other things, a right to a statutory minimum amount of notice of termination for both employers and employees.??However, concerns have been raised by workers, employers and other members of the public about the application of the law and the exclusion of important provisions from the legislation.
