Welcome and introduction


Case Law Update

Hear from our experts about some key employment law decisions in the last six months and how these might impact on your organisation. In particular, we consider a couple of interesting developments in the arena of unfair dismissal, and what light a recent decision of the Court of Appeal sheds on the question of when employees can be deemed to have ‘accepted’ a variation to their contractual terms.


Individual rights and Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) under GDPR – the disgruntled employee’s new weapon of choice?

Employees have always had the right to access their personal data via a DSAR. However, under the GDPR, it is now free to make such requests. In addition more information must be supplied in response, and in a more prescribed format. All of this, within a shorter response time- frame! We take a look at how employees and their representatives are starting to use individual data subject rights as powerful weapons in wider workplace disputes. What defensive preparations should employers take, and what tactics might see off such attacks?


Where are we with?

With the Brexit clock ticking ever louder, we look at the latest news about EU migration. We also take a whistle-stop tour of other (non Brexit) policy and legislative developments including, what’s next for gender pay reporting, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill (currently going through parliament), and implementation of the Trade Secrets (Enforcement etc) Regulations 2018
