ABSTRACT
The article focuses on legislative changes concerning employee welfare in Great Britain. The changes result from a combination of entirely new legislation, including the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, and updates to existing laws, such as the inclusion of smaller employers in the scope of the Information and Consultation of Employees (ICE) Regulations 2004. Fines are unlimited and are likely to rise steeply.
