Year 3 - issue 6 - 23.10.2019

TRIBUNALS

The dangers of disclosing legal advice

An employer who cherry picked a selection of documents for disclosure to an employee was held to have waived legal advice privilege in all the documents. Why was this?

WORKING TIME

Refusal to comply with working time breach must be explicit

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that, to have protection against detriment for refusing to comply with a requirement that would breach the Working Time Regulations, an employee must expressly communicate their refusal. What does this mean in practice?

CONTRACTS

Top tips for drafting employment contracts

When putting together a new employment contract for an employee, there are some common drafting mistakes that you should try to avoid. What are our top employment contract drafting tips to keep you safe?

RETIREMENT

Dismissing older workers

Since the abolition of the statutory default retirement age, employees can, theoretically, continue to work indefinitely and you can’t dismiss them just because they’ve reached 65. What are your options for terminating the employment of older employees?

TARGETS

Time to get SMART?

You want to improve target setting for your staff. You’re familiar with so-called SMART targets but haven’t ever implemented such a system. How should you go about it?

DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION

What is not a disability?

Although you’re probably relatively familiar with the statutory definition of a disability, what you might not know is that there are some specific exclusions to that definition. When does the law say that a condition does not constitute a disability?

DATA PROTECTION

GDPR data subject access guidance revised

The Information Commissioner’s Office has updated its position on calculating the time limit for responding to GDPR data subject access requests. What’s the latest?

MINIMUM WAGE

National living wage to apply to 21 year olds

The government has set out its intention to lower the age threshold for the national living wage (NLW) to age 21. When is this likely to happen?

SHARED PARENTAL LEAVE

Shared parental leave - getting to grips with the paperwork

It’s fair to say that the shared parental leave and pay scheme is complex, and it requires rather a lot of paperwork to be completed. To comply with legislative requirements, what documents must be submitted by employees and by when?

RECRUITMENT

Fees cut for criminal record checks

TRIBUNALS

Tribunal claims still on the increase
