Employment Law Update – April 2015

Martin Malone delivers his monthly Employment Law update, covering legal developments and interesting cases that hit the headlines in April.

Updated on a monthly basis, our CLB Employment website hosts a wide range of interesting and insightful articles looking at Employment Law matters. The CLB Employment blog is written by Martin Malone, one of the Partners here at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors and the Head of our Employment Law department.

In this month’s Employment Law update, Martin looks into the issue of work related stress, examining whether commonly held perceptions on stress in the workplace are valid in light of recent court cases, such as Easton –v- B&Q plc. He also offers his thoughts on what the future holds for Employment Tribunal fees after the general election.

Other topics covered in this month’s update include an exploration of the problems encountered when applying for fee remissions for employment tribunals and also the difficult topic of death in service benefits, and whether they are affected by an employee’s suicide.
