Well the new sentencing guidelines are now with us, coming in to force on February 1st 2016. You can read our previous blog here to find out all the changes and how this will affect your Company.

The Sentencing guidelines cover any Health and safety offences, corporate manslaughter and food safety and hygiene offences.

Alternatively SHP’s Simon Joyston-Bechal has written a very detailed article on the subject including some unintended consequences. Click the link to read.

Until next time
