BIS has just announced the Government will make changes to regulations under the Employment Rights Act 1996 that will mean that claims to Employment Tribunals cannot stretch back further than 2 years.
The changes will apply to claims made on or after 1st July 2015. There will be a transition period over the next 6 months during which time workers can still make claims under the existing arrangements. This may mean a rush of claims but difficult to know given a break of 3 months between the unlawful deductions will still limit historic claims.
