I hope you don’t mind this one-off mailing to remind you that it’s just two weeks to my first ‘public’ webinar on 9 September. I’m now starting to put together the content – and there is so much to tell you about.
The main focus of the session will be the cases that have been decided by the EAT and the Court of Appeal in the last few months. With just 90 minutes to play with I have to be really selective - so I’m only going to talk about the cases that have important practical lessons for employers. You can expect to hear about:
- The right procedure to follow when looking to dismiss an employee because of a breakdown in trust and confidence
- Whether it is fair to dismiss an employee accused of a crime before the court reaches its own verdict
- Whether an employee can claim constructive dismissal after an appeal against dismissal results in them being reinstated
- How an equal pay claim works – and whether the employer can continue to rely on a ‘material factor’ defence indefinitely
- Disability discrimination and what is meant by ‘something arising in consequence’ of a disability
I also want to look forward to the (now overdue) ruling from the Supreme Court on the National Minimum Wage for workers on a sleepover shift (perhaps we’ll even have a decision by then?). We’ll look at how the arguments went when the Supreme Court heard the appeal in the Uber case on the meaning of ‘worker’ - and I’ll try to make sense of the glut of cases that have been referred to them dealing with annual leave and holiday pay. And, of course, we'll talk about the employment law issues thrown up by covid-19.
I'll take as many questions as I can as we go along - it's going to be a lively session!
