Policy

ELA publishes occasional policy papers to assist in the understanding of employment law and its effect on people and businesses. We set out our current policy papers below.

The law is constantly changing and so the position set out in papers published here may not be current and you should not rely on the papers as a comprehensive statement of the law but should always seek advice if you require it from a qualified lawyer. ELA does not give legal advice.

ELA responses to consultations are also publicly available here.

During the current Coronavrus crisis ELA has set up a Covid-19 Standing Working Party to address employment law issues. Their papers can be found via the link below.
