Episode 90The View from Mayer Brown

Nick’s review of recent cases looks at a case where the employer claimed it was entitled to stop paying PHI benefits when an employee reached 60, another case where an employer claimed the right to withdraw childcare vouchers during maternity leave and a case where the employer claimed it had a wide discretion to award whatever bonus it saw fit. One of the employers lost. This podcast explains all three cases. To follow Nick on Twitter, please go to Nicholas Robertson@NicholasRober11 to receive links to all the cases mentioned.
