It’s July and if you’ve still got energy after all the hot weather, then we’ve got more HR/employment news for you. We can’t promise to match the drama of the World Cup, Wimbledon or best of all the Tour de France, but we can update you on the latest guidance from the solicitors’ regulatory body on using non-disclosure agreements or clauses and ACAS guidance on overtime and suspension.

In our case update we bring news on the latest EAT decisions.  These include when to include compulsory and voluntary overtime in your holiday pay calculations, the importance of offering an appeal when dismissing for lack of evidence of right to work and, finally, the importance of being proportionate when taking disciplinary action for absence connected to an employee’s disability.
