Conservative Manifesto Pledges on Employment Law

The Conservative party has published its manifesto for the 12 December 2019 general election.

The key Conservative manifesto pledges on employment law and industrial relations are:-

  • Promise not to raise the rates of income tax, National Insurance or VAT.
  • Raise the National Insurance threshold to £9,500 next year
  • Establish a new £1 billion fund to help create more high quality, affordable childcare, including before and after school and during the school holidays.
  • A number of workers, disproportionately women, who earn between £10,000 and £12,500 have been missing out on pension benefits because of a loophole affecting people with net pay pension schemes. We will conduct a comprehensive review to look at how to fix this issue.
  • Extend the entitlement to leave for unpaid carers, the majority of whom are women, to one week.
  • Create a single enforcement body and crack down on any employer abusing employment law, whether by taking workers’ tips or refusing them sick pay.
  • Ensure that workers have the right to request a more predictable contract and other reasonable protections.
  • Encourage flexible working and consult on making it the default unless employers have good reasons not to.
  • Legislate to allow parents to take extended leave for neonatal care, to support those new mothers and fathers who need it during the most vulnerable and stressful days of their lives. And look at ways to make it easier for fathers to take paternity leave.
