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.

Episode 43The View from Mayer Brown

Nick reviews three important recent cases: the first looks at the time limit for bringing a claim, where the alleged failure is to make a reasonable adjustment for a disabled employee, the second deals with damages for breach of the rules on collective redundancy consultation. The third considers whether covert recordings of internal hearings made by an employee were admissible in the subsequent tribunal claim.

Episode 40The View from Mayer Brown

Nick takes a look at three recent cases. The first deals with enforcement of a non compete covenant in the wealth management industry, and the second looks at whether a set of emails, read together, could amount to a qualifying disclosure under the whistleblowing legislation. Finally, the court looks at whether to imply a term requiring the pay out of accrued flexi-time when an employee leaves employment.
