HMRC’s £75k desk move error

The tribunal has ordered HMRC to pay £75,000 compensation to a disabled employee who was forced to change desks. What did HMRC do wrong?


Workplace pranks, injuries and employers’ liability

In October 2017 an employee sued her employer for £58,000. She had been injured after a colleague deliberately pulled her chair away as she sat down. However, the court said the employer wasn’t liable. Why was this?


Childcare: must you help out with vouchers?

An employee has been considering the new Tax-Free Childcare (TFC) scheme but thinks they would be better off financially if they sacrifice salary for childcare vouchers. Must you join a voucher scheme to ensure they don’t lose out?


Can I withdraw my grievance please?

Every employee has the statutory right to raise a grievance. But what happens if they subsequently inform you that they want to withdraw it? Must you respect their decision or carry on with the process regardless?


Can a disciplinary investigation be too thorough?

When an employee is subject to a disciplinary investigation your process must be fair and reasonable. But suppose the investigating manager goes thorough everything in fine detail - could that render a dismissal unfair?


Complaints about office lighting levels

You’ve received several complaints about poor lighting levels in your offices. Before dealing with them, you need to know if there are any legal requirements covering workplace lighting. If so, what are they?


Recruitment: applicants with criminal records

Apparently, 50% of employers wouldn’t hire someone with a criminal record. However, contrary to popular belief, a job applicant doesn’t have to disclose all convictions to a potential employer. What’s the legal position here?


Q&A - can we reissue PPE?


Time off following a bereavement?
