Employment Law Update - September 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 September's update, Martin offers his thoughts on the future of Employment Tribunals, after the introduction of fees has caused a near-collapse in the current system. He has also been looking at the shocking misbehaviour within the Metropolitan Police in light of the case of PC Carol Howard, who received a £37,000 payout from the force after being bullied and victimised on account of the colour of her skin.

Other topics covered in our latest Employment Law update include the mass of legal changes coming into effect from 1st October this year, which includes changes to Employment rights for fathers to be and the partners of pregnant women, who will now be allowed time off to attend antenatal appointments.
