Employment Law Update – December 2014

Martin Malone looks back over the year's news and developments in the world of Employment Law and anticipates the big changes coming in 2015.

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, one of the Partners here at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors and the Head of our Employment Law department.

In his final Employment Law update for 2014, Martin reports on the end of the line (for now at least) for legal challenges to the introduction of up-front fees for Employment Tribunals. Matters of religion and philosophy also came to the fore in Employment Law this month, when two Catholic midwives lost their case against their employers regarding their objection to being asked to participate in treatments including abortions whilst working in the labour ward of a hospital.

Martin also looked forwards into 2015, anticipating the big changes to the Employment Law landscape over the next 12 months, including shared parental leave, the introduction of the Fit for Work service and the implications of Lock v British Gas Trading Ltd, which will require employers to include comission payments when calculating holiday pay for their employees.
