UK Employment Law

Episode 56The View from Mayer Brown

In this episode Nick looks at three recent and important cases. The first case considers the test for allowing an employee located outside the UK to bring a claim in an English Employment Tribunal. The second case looks at alleged discrimination against a fixed term worker whose income protection claim was rejected because of the terms of the relevant insurance scheme. The third case confirms that, when identifying which employees transfer under the Transfer Regulations, it is not sufficient to consider just the percentage of time spent in the business which is transferring.

UK Employment Law

Episode 55The View from Mayer Brown

In this episode Nick reviews three cases dealing with various points of employment law. The first looks at whether an employer can defend a constructive dismissal claim by pointing out that the employee himself was in breach of contract. It also considers whether an employer is entitled to rely on explicit e-mails sent in breach of the company’s e-mail policy on the company’s email. The second case considers whether an individual can rely on British employment law where he worked 49% of his time in the UK. The final case decides whether an HR consultant had inadvertently agreed to contractual pay rise for a group of employees following a grievance.
