Among the raft of Bills which became law just before Parliament was prorogued are two – the Deregulation Act 2015 and the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 – some of whose provisions will have significant employment law implications, but not for a while. With the exception of one provision (and even that is only partial), none of the changes have yet come into force (contrary to what was originally stated for a week on the BIS website). They need what are called commencement orders to activate them. Much may therefore depend on the political make up and priorities of the next government. The proposed changes are summarised briefly below.
