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.
