Employment Breakfast Briefing Webinar - Unfair dismissal: an update

Tuesday 7th April, 2020 |
Online Webinar

Free to attend

This webinar will provide a timely reminder of the law on unfair dismissal during the Covid-19 pandemic when employers may be considering terminating employment contracts. It will cover the key questions an employment tribunal will ask in an unfair dismissal claim and will also provide an update on recent unfair dismissal case law including:

•    Supreme Court: was a dismissal motivated by whistleblowing in a case where the dismissing officer had no knowledge of the disclosures but was being manipulated by the employee's line manager (Royal Mail Ltd v Jhuti);
•    EAT: was a dismissal for failure to disclose safeguarding information about the employee being a risk to her own daughter in breach of the employee's human rights (Q v Secretary of State for Justice)
•    EAT: should gross negligence be treated as a conduct or capability issue? (Philander v Leonard Cheshire Disability)

If you are interested in attending this webinar, please use the booking form and a member of the events team will be in touch to send you further information.

This webinar is free of charge.
