In brief

The Baker McKenzie London Employment team is delighted to share with you episode one of our new virtual miniseries, “Employment Rights: is 2022 the year of enforcement?”, where we will be taking an in-depth look into the areas we believe there will be significant developments to the enforcement of UK employment rights in 2022 and beyond.

We are joined by Stephen Ratcliffe and Richard Cook in episode one with a topic that has been one of the inspirations behind the series, the UK’s proposed Single Enforcement Body. The government recently announced that it intends to introduce this body to take lead on enforcing various employment rights on behalf of vulnerable employees. Tune in to hear about the varied remit of the SEB and its responsibilities, and why this could have potentially huge repercussions for UK employers as the government looks to make a significant departure from what we have been used to previously.

He has more than 14 years of legal experience and was recognized as an "Associate to Watch" by Chambers & Partners in 2014, 2015 and 2016 before his promotion to partnership.
