UK Employment Law

Episode 45The View from Mayer Brown

Nick looks at three EAT decisions this week. The first offers very useful guidelines for parties dealing with whistle blowing complaints, and the second considers whether a Tribunal could require the employer to pay 100% of the cost of a joint medical expert report for a disability discrimination claim. The final case looks at a share acquisition of a company where the degree of control exercised by the buyer after the acquisition was found to have triggered a TUPE transfer of the employees to the buyer itself.

UK Employment Law

Episode 44The View from Mayer Brown

Nick looks at three cases reported in the last fortnight. One case considers the whistleblowing legislation and how much information an employee has to communicate, before getting the protection of the legislation. The second case makes it more difficult for employers to avoid the TUPE service provision change provisions, and the third case raises some important points on enforcement of restrictive covenants, and in particular when will damages be an adequate remedy.
