Year 21 - issue 8 - 11.04.2019

PAY

Staff to access pay early?

A new app which allows employees to access up to 30% of their salary before payday is growing in popularity. If you introduced it into your workplace, how would it affect your payroll reporting?

DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES

£16,000 for flawed drug investigation

The tribunal has awarded an employee over £16,000 having ruled that the employer conducted a flawed drug investigation. Where did the employer in this case go wrong and what should you never do?

HOLIDAYS

The downsides of a unlimited holiday policy

It’s been suggested that you follow the example of some larger firms and introduce an unlimited holidays policy. It’s a nice idea and it could well motivate staff but what could be the problems?

DISCIPLINARY PROCEdures

The employee who gives “no comment” answers

You’ve commenced a disciplinary investigation against an employee but they’re answering all of your questions with “no comment”. Does their refusal to engage with the proceedings prevent you from moving to a disciplinary hearing?

STAFF BENEFITS

Can staff demand dairy-free milk and herbal teas?

Many employers provide free tea, coffee and milk for staff to use throughout their working day. But what if some employees ask you to provide dairy-free alternatives, decaf options and herbal tea as well. Must you do this?

AGENCY WORKERS

Agency workers: who is liable for underpayments?

Agency workers have the right to the same terms relating to pay as if they were directly employed by the end-user after twelve weeks in the same role. If an agency you use underpays a worker, can you be liable for the underpayment?

MOBILE PHONES

Personal accounts on business mobiles

Many employees who are issued with work mobile phones will activate personal accounts on them, such e-mail addresses, iTunes and Whatsapp. Do you have the right to access these personal accounts?

PAYSLIPS

Itemised pay statements for all
