Case law update
We will be considering some of the key employment law cases, since our 2013 Autumn Member briefings. We will focus in particular on developments in the area of disability discrimination and the management of ill-health absence. We will also consider the impact of the case of Moran and Ideal Cleaning Services Ltd on the potential application of the Agency Worker Regulations for long terms assignments - what does ‘temporarily’ mean for the purposes of the Regulations?
Health check for your medical records
We know that it is not easy to get medical reports on time that are fit for purpose. In this session, we focus on the practical steps you can take to get the information you need from health professionals to make decisions about employees who are off sick or who have an underlying health condition. We will also update you on Government plans to introduce a new Health and Work service to provide employers with the advice they need to help more people stay in work when health problems arise.
Holiday pay: is it time to re-calculate?
Holiday pay is in the spotlight again! The latest issue is what elements of pay must be included in holiday pay to provide employees with “normal remuneration” for the period of the leave. In this session, we look at recent cases law dealing with the inclusion of overtime, standby payments, commission and other payments additional to basic salary. We also consider the possible outcomes as the cases go to the employment appeal tribunal and the Court of Justice of the European Union and steps that members may want to take in the meantime.
A look at what’s coming in this year including an update on the timing for the introduction of the extension of the right to flexible working and shared parental leave and a summary of the new rules for mandatory pre-claim conciliation.
