No 79 (C.7) The Employment Act (Northern Ireland) 2016 (Commencement No 2) Order (Northern Ireland) 2018
This legislation becomes operational from 29/3/18 and makes changes regarding the provisions on the indexation of certain employment rights awards.
These changes include - limits to be made on a fixed date, 6th April, each year and for the relevant calculations to be rounded up or down to the nearest whole pound. The amendments also provide the responsible Department with the ability to make an order at any time to vary such limits, subject to a draft of the order being laid before, and approved by, the Assembly. Where such an order is made, it may remove the requirement for indexation for a specified period.
