People, Reward and Mobility – Annual update and diversity review – May 2018

Expansion of the meaning of working time

For many employers, the concept of “working time” can be difficult to pin down. In particular, the question as to whether time spent “on call” can count as working time has been the subject of various European case law decisions over the last decade.

Working time is defined in the Working Time Directive (WTD) as any period during which a worker is carrying out his duties and is at his employer’s disposal.

Historically, when considering this issue the courts have tended to focus on the worker’s location during periods of time spent on call. However, in the recent Belgian case of Ville de Nivelles v. Matzak, the ECJ appears to be moving away from that line of thinking.

UK Employment Law Round-up – March 2018

In this issue we look at some of the key employment law developments that have been taking place over the past month. In our case law review we take a look at ‘deemed disabilities’ under the Equality Act following a recent EAT judgment. We also look at what happens if an employer does not know an employee is pregnant when deciding to dismiss but finds out before the dismissal takes effect. The impact of the new taxation of termination payments coming into force from 6 April 2018 and the sponsor licence reporting process to be mindful of when involved in mergers and acquisitions are also covered.

UK Employment Law Round-up – February 2018

In this issue we look at some of the key employment law developments that have been taking place over the past month. In particular, we take a look at the outcome of Matthew Taylor’s review of modern employment practices and the Fawcett Society’s report on potential gaps in current sex discrimination legislation in the UK. The second of these is particularly significant in light of the growing movement to raise awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace. We also give you our top tips for getting your organisation ready for the implementation of the GDPR, which is now only three months away(!), and the first hike in the “minimum” requirements for auto-enrolment compliance.
