In February’s edition of our employment e-briefing, we review the Supreme Court’s decision in Uber v Aslam and the implications this has for “gig economy” workers. We explain why it is important for employers to regularly review their equalities training and associated policies and we also examine the effect (if any) that raising a grievance or appealing a disciplinary decision might have on an employee’s ability to claim constructive unfair dismissal.  Finally, we look at the reasons behind the government’s sudden U-turn and its decision to  revoke the Restrictions on Public Sector Exit Payments Regulations 2020 little more than three months after they came into force.

We hope you find this E-briefing helpful. If you have any question arising from any of the issues raised within, please contact Prettys Employment Team on 01473 232121.
