2017 General Election

How the Party Manifestos compared for workers' rights in the 2017 general election.

In the run up to the 2017 General Election, the Institute of Employment Rights launched Fact News - a series of articles and videos that explained the labour law content of each Party Manifesto.

Workers’ rights become a major political battleground for the 2017 Snap Election and the IER took a detailed look behind the proposals in each Manifesto to analyse the facts, the history and context of each proposal, as well as make recommendations for the strengthening of workers’ rights.

In the weeks leading up to the election, we updated our content with videos, articles, briefings and expert analysis.
