UK People, Reward and Mobility Newsletter – October 2021



In this issue, we look at some of the key employment law developments that have taken place over the past month. In particular, we examine: the Pension Regulator's new powers under the Pension Schemes Act 2021; mandatory and voluntary pay gap reporting; the long-term shift towards flexible working; and two contradictory decisions on employer justified retirement ages.

Employer resources and new regulations

United Kingdom: In recent Insight articles, we have taken the opportunity of discussing new changes to the pensions landscape brought in under the Pension Schemes Act 2021 (Act).
