November 2017 Newsletter

fireworks in november

It’s November and as with the fireworks at the start of this month, the Information Commissioner’s Office is hoping to shed light on the GDPR by setting up a telephone advice line for small businesses. Advice is also finally available for all those who need Tribunal fees refunded since the Supreme Court decision in July.  Also a review published last month, which was commissioned by the Government, helps to illuminate how organisations can improve mental health in their workplace.

In our case update this month we take a look at the EAT decision that Uber’s drivers are workers, rather than self employed.  Finally we update you on the Court of Appeal’s decision that if a dismissal is actioned by a manager unaware of the employee’s protected disclosures, that employee is not automatically unfairly dismissed for whistleblowing.
