Employment Law Update – August 2014

Martin Malone presents his round-up of recent news and developments from the world of Employment Law.

If you haven't already visited it, 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, a Partner and the Head of the Employment Law department here at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors.

In this month's update, Martin has been taking a look at recent proposals from the Office of Tax Simplification and asking whether they will really make the tax treatment of settlement payments easier to understand and fairer. He also examines whether or not an employee whose contract is illegal can make a claim for discrimination and at how the new Health and Work Service, due to launch later this year, will help employees who are currently on long-term sickness absence return to work.
