star this property answer text <p>If an employer required or encouraged implantation of microchips among its employees, it would raise several legal issues. While I am not aware of any cases being brought to test the legal position, it seems unlikely that such an invasive approach to security or monitoring would be found to be justifiable. So, it is likely to be difficult for an employer to show that such a practice would be consistent with the requirements of data protection legislation, health and safety requirements, and other legal obligations to employees.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We estimate that around 1.2m homes will be treated under the current Energy Company Obligation between autumn 2018 and March 2022 on the basis of the lifetime bill saving targets that obligated energy suppliers have been set. This is set out on page 27 of the final impact assessment which can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/energy-company-obligation-eco3-2018-to-2022?6543" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/energy-company-obligation-eco3-2018-to-2022?6543</a>. Being a statutory obligation on energy suppliers to meet their targets, we have a high degree of confidence that the lifetime bill savings delivered through installing measures into homes will be met in full. Suppliers have flexibility as to how they phase delivery over the obligation period.</p> more like this
