Employment Law Update – June 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 the important developments in employment law, including Vince Cable’s announcement that the government will no longer permit zero-hours contracts to contain an exclusivity clause. He has also been reflecting on the Supreme Court’s decision in R (on the application of T and another) v Secretary of State for the Home Department and another, the Supreme Court ruling which said that someone’s Police cautions and minor convictions should not have to be disclosed to potential future employers in criminal record checks.
