REFERENCES

Might you have to provide a reference?

The government has announced that it’s to consult on whether employers should be legally required to provide references for ex-employees. What’s the issue here?

DISCIPLINARY PROCEEDINGS

Changes to report didn’t make dismissal unfair

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that where views helpful to an employee were removed from a final disciplinary investigation report it didn’t make the gross misconduct dismissal unfair. Why was this?

PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

Do you need a lone working policy?

If you employ any staff who are required to work alone, even if only on an occasional basis, you should ideally put in place a lone working policy. What are the benefits of such a policy?

TIME OFF

How to manage career breaks

Career breaks can offer benefits for employers, particularly around staff retention. What particular matters do you need to think about when putting in place a career breaks policy to ensure maximum protection?

TRAINING

Do you know what your training needs are?

Your business is growing, and you’d like to expand the range of services that you offer but don’t think your employees are currently up to this. How can you identify what training they will need?

SICK PAY

Do you have to pay sick pay for elective surgery?

If an employee undergoes elective surgery, they are likely to need some time off work, both for the procedure itself and to recover afterwards. What are your obligations to pay them statutory or contractual sick pay during their absence?

DISCRIMINATION

New guidance on confidentiality agreements

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published new guidance on the use of confidentiality agreements in discrimination cases. Should you read it?

EMPLOYMENT LAW REFORM

Queen’s Speech 2019: employment implications

The Queen’s Speech, delivered on 14 October 2019, outlined two new pieces of employment-related legislation. What were they?

REDUNDANCY

Time off to look for work on redundancy

Where an employee is under notice of dismissal due to redundancy, they are entitled to take reasonable time off work to either look for a new job or to arrange training for future employment. Exactly how far does this statutory right extend?
