Enterprise Bill

The Enterprise Bill continues through Parliament. It passed the House of Lords at the end of 2015 and will now have three readings in the House of Commons. 

This Bill appears to focus on business and enterprise. However, as outlined in Law Matters October 2015, Part 8 of the Bill will impose restrictions on public sector exit payments. 

Dave Prentis, general secretary of the UNISON public services union, has commented that this “will impact on hundreds of thousands of public sector workers”.
