The coalition government has launched the most radical overhaul of employment law since unfair dismissal was created in 1971.
The most important change to employment law which takes effect from today is the one which has had the least coverage – the near-abolition of legal aid in employment cases.
On 6 April 2010 the statement of fitness for work ("fit note") was introduced. This replaced the previous "sick note" and allows doctors to indicate not only if an employee is "not fit to for work" but also if they "may be fit for work". The fit note gives doctors the opportunity (by way of tick boxes) to suggest ways in which the employee may be able to return to work such as altered hours or reduced duties.
