The Flexible Working Bill: What does this mean for employers and employees?

The Government’s new Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Act 2023 was given Royal Assent in July 2023.

The changes will give more British workers flexibility over where and when they work. However, the Act will not take effect immediately, but it does give the Secretary of State the power to introduce regulations to bring them into force, which is likely to be in 2024.

58% of UK businesses currently offer flexible working, which is a significant difference compared to 2016 where 8.7% of roles were advertised as flexible.

So, what does this mean for employers and employees? Read more.

Feedback Thursday

Family Legal Expenses Insurance

With legal advice regarding neighbour disputes increasing during the summer holidays, we’re pleased to support this customer with a boundary dispute under their Family Legal Expenses Insurance policy.

“The legal services and advice received was courteous and exact, allowing the boundary dispute with my neighbour to be resolved promptly, and with minimum disruption to both parties.

The appointed solicitor was extremely generous with their advice and time with this dispute, thank you for the excellent service.”

Property Owners Legal Expenses Insurance

As the cost-of-living crisis continues, landlords are feeling the financial squeeze as their own costs are unavoidably increasing.

As a landlord, it’s important that rental income continues to be paid each month, but what happens if tenants are struggling to make the monthly payments?

Our Property Owners Legal Expenses Insurance was invaluable for this customer who was facing considerable rent arrears with their tenant. Our Legal Expenses and Rent Guarantee insurance and support services covers legal fees, unpaid rent, and debt recovery.

“I want to pass on my thanks to Arc Legal for their invaluable support and professionalism during a difficult period. We were facing considerable rent arrears, were deeply distressed about the legal process and anxious about our capacity to support our outgoings.

Throughout our claim Arc Legal were supportive, which was very assuring given the circumstances.”

AmTrust Cares programme

Our teams in Colchester, Brierley Hill and Cardiff donated a staggering 323.4kg of food and toiletries as part of the AmTrust Cares Food Drive throughout July.

This event marks the one-year anniversary of AmTrust Cares corporate giving programme and highlights the AmTrust spirit of generosity and teamwork. All donations will be delivered to local foodbanks and will make a real difference to families in need.

Colleagues recently used their volunteering hours at the Doucecroft School DIY Day as part of the AmTrust Cares programme. The team put on their DIY belts and helped to completely transform the classrooms and corridors at the school.

The Golden Neighbourhood rule

Neighbour disputes can be stressful and challenging; however, they are extremely common. Our Legal Assistance Helpline typically receives a higher number of calls during the summer months from property boundary disputes and noise complaints to nuisance behaviours.

Rebecca Conway looks at the contributing factors and provides some top tips to help avoid neighbour disputes this summer. Read more.
