Recruitment News – Jan 2020
The Government on the 7/1/20 has officially launched its review in to IR35, as promised by Sajid Javid, Chancellor of the Exchequer in November 2019.
According to the Government “the review will determine if any further steps can be taken to ensure the smooth and successful implementation of the reforms, which are due to come in to force in April 2020.”
The review will be concluded by mid-February, which will hold a series of roundtables with contractor groups and medium and large-sized businesses. The Government will also evaluate its Check employment status for tax (CEST) tool.
A separate review will also be launched in conjuncture with the IR35, which is to explore how it can better support the self-employed.
OH and Wellbeing News
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has held the first meeting of its steering group looking at the future shape of Part 3 of the register, the current home in terms of registration for many occupational health nurses.
The meeting saw occupational health represented by the Faculty of Occupational Health Nursing (FOHN) and the National School of Occupational Health (NSOH)
Within OH, there have long been concerns as to whether NMC-validated Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (SCPHN) occupational health courses remain fit for purpose and whether the NMC even fully understands the nature and complexities of OH practice.
But the meeting in November put that latter concern at least to rest, emphasised Fiona King, FOHN deputy chief operating officer.
“It was very positive. We can be quite negative within OH sometimes about the NMC. But, actually, I felt they were very much listening. Occupational health got equal airtime to everyone else and there was an understanding that there were differences, and the unique positioning that occupational health has. It was very much, ‘how do we make this work going forward?” she told Occupational Health & Wellbeing.
The review process is expected to run for a further 18 months at least and the steering group is being chaired by former deputy chief nursing officer for England Dr David Foster.
