Rugby World Cup (18 September to 31 October 2015): ACAS has published new guidance, available here, on time off and performance-related issues for employers over the Rugby World Cup period. ACAS advises employers to have agreements in place that cover requests for time off, sickness absence and website use during working hours and to be fair and consistent in their actions.
