HMRC asks for comments on IR35 | Consensus HR – Herts, Beds
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has launched a consultation seeking views on calculating PAYE liabilities in cases of non-compliance for off-payroll working (IR35).
This technical consultation sets out the mechanism by which HMRC will be able to account for taxes already paid by individuals and their intermediary on income received from off-payroll working when recovering the tax due under PAYE from the employer.
It includes a draft Statutory Instrument (SI), the Income Tax (Pay As You Earn) (Amendment) Regulations 2024, and several items of draft guidance/
Lone working: protect those working alone | Consensus HR – Herts, Beds
At Consensus HR, we are continually asked about many areas of Health & Safety and one area that recently raised its head was Lone working: protect those working alone. This detailed information from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) gives some very valuable guidance and tools:
Lone workers can be at greater risk of harm as they may not have anyone to help or support them if things go wrong.
Employers should provide training, supervision, monitoring and support for those working alone.

Government publishes draft paternity leave regulations | Consensus HR – Herts, Beds
We reported previously that the Government had committed to amending the current legislation on parental leave following a consultation to which it had received 185 responses.
Now it has published a draft Statutory Instrument (SI), the Paternity Leave (Amendment) Regulations 2024.
Although the adopted version of this SI has still to be published, none of the main terms are likely to be changed before it comes into force on 8 March 2024.
Government amends Equality Act to ensure rights continue | Consensus HR – Herts, Beds
The Equality Act 2010 (Amendment) Regulations 2023, which came into force on 1 January 2024, maintain the effects of certain retained EU law in relation to several aspects of the 2010 Act.
The new Regulations, which can be found here, amend the Equality Act 2010 to ensure that current rights continue given that the interpretive effects of EU law on the UK’s statute book were removed, at the end of 2023, by the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023. Employment Law is always changing and we discuss this on our website.
