Insight: UK Employment Law Round-up – February 2016

UKEmploymentLawRoundUp Feb2016 In this edition we will be taking a look at some employment issues which have been making headlines and at some of the more technical points raised in recent case law.

We will also delve into a recent tax decision of the Upper Tribunal considering the taxation of injury to feelings settlement payment; a couple of EAT cases highlighting its approach to Early Conciliation and the Tribunal’s powers to make case management orders; and a rare TUPE case dealing with the issue of temporary cessation of work.
