Topics

  • The buck stops … where?
When can individuals become personally liable for their actions in the workplace? When should an employer step in to support them and what risks does it take if it does so? When might an employer be obliged to give support?
 
  • Whistling in the wind
When is an employee’s protection under Whistleblowing law triggered? What is the difference between “making an allegation” and “providing information” and how can an employer identify which is which?
 
  • Contracting Contractor Contracts
A summary of the planned IR35 changes. What will this mean for the future of the contractor?
 
  • Adjusting expectations
How does the duty to make reasonable adjustments apply to a disabled employee if they are underperforming?  How much leeway do employers need to give?
 
  • To pay or not to pay?
Who is entitled to receive the National Minimum Wage? What are the differences in treatment between interns, trainees and those on work placements?
 
  • Handling Brexit
An update on Brexit. What will organisations need to do if they employ EU Nationals or have UK employees working in the EU?
 
  • How gross is that?!
What behaviour justifies instant dismissal for gross misconduct or gross negligence? Can a number of smaller offences add up to gross misconduct? What differences in process are needed if considering summary dismissal?
 
  • It’s not you, it’s me
What happens if there is no issue of misconduct or capability but continued employment just isn’t tenable?  What exactly is a dismissal on grounds of “some other substantial reason”? When can this be an appropriate reason for terminating employment and how “substantial” must it be?
 
  • Equality for all?
What rights do agency workers have in comparison to employees? What is the actual extent of those rights?
 
  • Resigned to litigation?
When might an employee be constructively dismissed and what really is a “fundamental” or “repudiatory” breach of contract? What steps can an employer take to limit potential damage?
