December 2017 Newsletter

Seasons Greetings from Menzies Law - Holly with berries

It’s December, Happy Christmas! We hope to entertain you with our last 2017 employment law/HR news before the celebrations (rightly) take over.

This year’s newsletters come to an end with a helping hand on how to manage a workplace full of the Christmas spirit, report on employment status and ACAS guidance.  In our final case update of the year we look at the CJEU’s decision on holiday pay for the wrongly classified self-employed and the EAT’s view that giving a false reason for dismissal is enough to amount to breach of contract.

See you in 2018 and enjoy the New Year’s Eve celebrations!

What we’ve been doing recently…

UK Regional Law Firm of the Year (Human Resources)
UK Regional Law Firm of the Year (Human Resources)

My team and I are delighted to be able to finish off 2017 in superb style by announcing that we have been crowned the UK’s Regional Law Firm of the Year 2018 in our field of Human Resources law.

It feels a towering achievement, and makes these last 9 years of growing Menzies Law from a tiny acorn feel well worth it!

This award from The Legal 500, the UK’s leading independent market research group in the legal sector, is particularly welcome and valuable to us because it comes solely as the result of the market researchers having spoken to many of our clients and our competitors.  It’s not an award you can even nominate yourself for, let alone ‘buy’.

I’d like to thank all of our clients very much indeed for the positive comments they have made to the researchers.

From myself and the Menzies Law team, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a productive, peace-filled New Year… with absolutely no fall-out whatsoever from any workplace Christmas parties.  None at all.
