Compliance Update

 

 

 

Regulatory tracking — July 2019

Staying ahead of new regulations can be challenging. Regulators expect firms to identify and react to all the emerging regulatory changes that affect them. Since our last regulatory update in June, a new government has been formed in the UK, a consultation has been launched on workplace harassment and other policies are on the horizon.

Help us design better mental health training

 

 

As part of our mission to create a safer, fairer, and better world, VinciWorks is developing innovative new mental health and wellbeing training specifically designed for organisations like yours.

We believe employee training on mental health and wellbeing, as well as occupational safety, should meet three vital requirements:

  • Encouraging personal responsibility at work
  • Supporting a culture of caring for others
  • Promoting safe and responsible use of the work environment

Like all our products, our mental health and wellbeing suite is focused on providing timely, relevant and practical information that fits in today's workplace and meets your needs.

SRA training update

 

 

On 25 November 2019 the new SRA Standards and Regulations come into effect. Replacing the SRA Handbook, the SRA Standards and Regulations stipulate the behaviours, standards and requirements expected by solicitors and other SRA regulated people.

By September 15th, VinciWorks will release a series of online courses covering the key, relevant sections of the Standards and Regulations.

The whitepaper below details the key changes in the regulations and explains what the new VinciWorks training will include.

Annual declarations reporting portal

VinciWorks has studied the annual declarations process at tens of firms to build a best-practice solution that saves time, delivers completions faster and can be deployed in less than a week. Omnitrack's annual declaration reporting portal allows solicitors to easily report their involvement in other businesses. Any potential conflict of interest is automatically flagged, allowing conflicts teams to assess whether the employee's involvement is permitted.

HMRC releases draft regulations and consultation on DAC6

 

 

HMRC has just released its draft regulations on implementing the 6th Directive on Administrative Cooperation, known as DAC6, into UK law. From 1 July 2020, taxpayers and their advisers are required to report details of certain cross-border arrangements that could be used to avoid or evade paying tax to HMRC. HMRC has been engaging with interested parties over the last year to identify the best approach for implementing this measure.

UK Government launches consultation on workplace harassment

 

 

In light of high-profile harassment cases brought to light via the media and the #MeToo movement, the government has launched a consultation to review the enforcement and effectiveness of the Equality Act 2010. An important aspect the government has noted is that harassment can relate to any protected characteristic, so any strengthening of the laws against sexual harassment would likely apply to harassment and discrimination against other protected characteristics such as race, religion and LGBTQ people.
