Retail Risk Report 2018

2018 has been a particularly challenging year for retailers so far, combining tough trading conditions with digital disruption and major legal and regulatory changes.

Our Retail Risk Report, now in its fourth year, is a single point of reference to help retailers understand the legal and regulatory changes taking place in 2018 and beyond. There are some clear themes emerging from this year's report, including:

  • increased transparency in business, such as payment practices and gender pay gap reporting
  • employment regulation, such as increases in the national minimum wage and changes to termination payments
  • energy efficiency regulations
  • data privacy and protection, and
  • Brexit implications.

Perhaps more than ever, it's important for retailers to plan ahead, monitor issues and put in place appropriate strategies to deal with any likely disruption. If you have any questions about this year's report, please do get in touch.
