The government expect to reduce the regulations by another £83million by replacing the “One-in One-out’ with ‘One-in Two-out’ by June 2013.

By March 2013 the following will be in action:

And by April 2013 the following changes will take place

The Home Office have also announced changes.
They now have a new service where employees and volunteers that require criminal record checks will be able to make just one application and then have access to an online certificate check to the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service),this stops them needed to make a new application for each job they apply for. This should also speed up the recruiting process and save both time and money.

There will also be changes made to the adoption system.

Those in employment will be provided with time off of work to meet the child that they are adopting before they move in with the family. They will be able to receive paid leave for up to 5 times to meet the child.

The pay leave for those adopting will also rise. The increase will mean the adopter will receive 90% of their statutory pay.

The employee must have been employed for at least 26 weeks within their company to qualify for the new rise in pay.
