SRA health and wellbeing rules ‘lack evidence’, claims The Law Society

Law Society president, I. Stephanie Boyce, said that the organisation shares the SRA’s wish to support a ‘healthy profession’, however it ‘opposes the need to introduce additional regulation’ in order to achieve it

Proposals laid out by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for changes to its rules on health and wellbeing at work “are not supported by evidence”, according to the Law Society of England and Wales.

The SRA’s consultation is aiming to clarify the regulatory requirements for solicitors and firms in the areas of health and fitness to practise and the appropriate treatment of work colleagues.
