Employment Law Update – March 2015

Martin Malone delivers his monthly Employment Law update, covering developments and interesting cases that hit the headlines last month.

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.

As the 2015 General Election campaign is now underway in this month’s Employment Law update Martin gets political, looking at an Employment Appeal Tribunal case where a claim of direct discrimination was made by an employee in relation to his “left-wing democratic socialist beliefs”. With summer creeping closer, Martin revisits the issue holiday pay and commission, as the employment tribunal decision relating to the landmark court case of Lock v British Gas has finally been issued.

This month’s update also covers restricted reporting orders in Employment Tribunal cases. Martin considers how best to strike the balance between allowing whistle blowing employees to make claims relating to serious wrongdoing by their employers, whilst at the same time avoiding the use of the tribunal as a platform for an employee to make irrelevant and potentially embarrassing accusations against their employer.
