Now we know what Government will be in place for the next five years, we can take a more focused look at what we can expect the employment law landscape to look like under a Conservative majority Government. We discussed in outline how each of the parties' manifesto pledges could impact employment law in our last update which can be found here.

The new Government is expected to prioritise laws on work and childcare. The Conservatives have said that measures on work and childcare will be at the heart of their first legislative programme due to be announced later this month and will be "fast tracked" through Parliament. Over the coming years, we can expect a number of policy issues to feature on the agenda in light of the pledges made in the Conservative manifesto.

Please see our Update for details.
