The government has announced another additional bank holiday, this time to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Tuesday 5th June 2012 will be a bank holiday and the late May bank holiday will be moved to Monday 4 June 2012.

The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1 July 2011. It will create a corporate offence of failure to prevent bribery by those working on behalf of a business unless adequate procedures are in place to prevent bribery. Penalties include an unlimited fine and up to 10 years’ imprisonment and so now is the time for directors to get to grips with the legislation and to implement their anti-bribery policy.

The Equality Act 2010 introduces a single public sector equality duty for those operating in the public sector from 1 July 2011. Public authorities will have until 31 December 2011 to publish information to show compliance and until 6 April 2012 to publish equality objectives.
