Spring Budget 2023: working practices

15 March 2023

In recognition of the fact the way in which we work now has changed, there are currently several government activities underway which concentrate on modern working practices.

Members Bills are currently working their way through Parliament which allow for:

  • a day one right to request flexible working

  • enhanced redundancy protection for pregnancy

  • family leave

  • carer’s leave

  • neonatal care leave

  • ensuring all tips go to staff

  • workers to request a contract with more predictable hours.

In summer 2023, the government will publish a call for evidence which explores informal flexible working, to understand how informal and ad hoc flexible working arrangements work for both employees and their employers.
