Insight: UK Employment Law Round-up – September 2016

UK Employment Law Round-up In this issue, we look at whether a job applicant can gain protection under the Framework and Equal Treatment Directives if the purpose of the application is to gain the status of someone who can make a claim to gain compensation.
