FCA launches appointed representatives unit to tackle harm

“This trial period will allow us to identify the most appropriate balance of hybrid working, enabling us to benefit from the best of both working in an office environment and remotely,” it said. 

Last month, FTAdviser reported that the FCA said its disciplinary policy may apply when there are no “exceptional circumstances” for staff not wanting to return to the office.

Yesterday, the FCA's Unite members took part in the first day of strike action and held placards and flags complaining about changes to pay and conditions of employment.

It came after members of Unite, the union which represents staff at the regulator, agreed last month to take part in a work-to-rule, meaning they would work strictly to their contracts of employment, job descriptions and working hours.
