Policy discussion papers

Acas Policy Discussion Papers are written by the Acas strategy unit with the aim of stimulating discussion and debate about key employment relations issues. The views expressed are those of the author and not the Acas council.

Read our policy paper, pdf icon Workplace trends of 2016 [680kb], which gives some great insights and food for thought for everyone in the workplace and will help with planning and decision making into the future.

You can also find shorter features on employment relations issues in the archive Employment Relations Matters section and more recent articles in Employment Relations Comment.
