Employment Law Update – November 2014

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


In his latest Employment Law update, Martin shares his thoughts on ‘Plebgate’ and how the failure of Andrew Mitchell MP’s libel case, estimated to have left him with costs of between £1.5m and £3m again highlights spiralling legal costs across the board. Martin also looks at discrimination during maternity leave, in the case of Wainwright v Sefton Borough Council and the issue of whether failing to offer a suitable vacancy to a woman selected for redundancy whilst on maternity leave constitutes discrimination.


This month’s update also examines whether it is possible to extend the time limit for proceedings against a former director of a business and to what extent (if at all) an employer can be held liable for psychiatric injuries suffered by one of their employees.
