It’s October, and if the trick or treat of Brexit (depending on your point of view) is getting you down, we hope to help (rather than haunt) you with the warm bath of our latest newsletter.  Employee spirits should be raised (get it?) by the Government’s proposed law to ensure employers pass on tips in full,…

Now that the summer is a distant memory and we’re all firmly ‘back to school’, it is normally to be expected that Parliament gets back to passing legislation including employment law.  However, we all know that the words ‘normal’ and ‘Parliament’ are not going to sit well together at the moment.  While we watch with…

May 2019 Newsletter

It’s May, and hopefully the bank holidays have provided an opportunity for rest and recuperation – very appropriate in the month of Mental Health Awareness week.  It’s also been the month of new beginnings with the birth of royal baby Archie (but a seemingly painful end to Danny Baker’s time at the BBC). It also…

It’s March and in keeping with the spirit of Spring, we’re leaping forward into April to see what changes are in store for employers.  We also update you on the Government’s consultation on confidentiality clauses (or ‘NDA’s) and new guidance on holiday pay for staff with no fixed hours or rates of pay.
