Breakfast Briefing - 17 OctoberThe Summer's Harvest - An employment case update
It has been a momentous summer for employment law developments.
The Supreme Court has, in R (Unison) v Lord Chancellor, declared the 2013 Employment Tribunal Fees Order unlawful. No fee is now required for a claim. We discuss the ramifications of the decision and how managers and HR practitioners can gear themselves up for an expected rise in employment tribunal complaints.
The law on protection of whistleblowers is expanding fast. When submitted to a detriment or dismissed for making a protected disclosure, an employee needs no qualifying period to make a claim. We discuss the definitive Court of Appeal case of Chesterton Global v Nurmohamed and Others on the meaning of disclosure in the "public interest".
We also discuss the key cases of Jhuti v Royal Mail Group, Beatt v Croydon Health Services Trust and International Petroleum Ltd v Osipov, as well as guiding you through this difficult area.
And there are some key cases on TUPE: on service provision change, on an employee's right to object to a transfer, the transfer of seniority rights and the rights of an employee on extended leave at the time of transfer.
Join us for a review of and practical insights on these, and other, exciting developments over the summer of 2017.
This seminar is free of charge.
Please recommend this event to your colleagues.
