October 2018 Newsletter

It’s October and time for Halloween.  We don’t mean to spook you, but we have heard haunting tales of mandatory ethnicity pay gap reporting and fines for employers who don’t pay their data protection fees.  We hope to shed light on these developments and the Government’s plans to ensure that tips go to staff in full.

In our case update this month we ask you to tread carefully when dismissing staff just before a TUPE transfer or removing contractual terms.

News about Menzies Law

We would like to give a warm welcome to Tamsin James who has joined the Menzies team.  Like Luke, Anne-Marie and Simon, Tamsin is a specialist employment lawyer with over 20 years’ experience (making a grand total of over 80 years’ experience between all our lawyers).  Tamsin started her career advising large employers, but now uses her expertise to advise senior employees and individuals. She has a particular speciality in complex discrimination claims – and we are seeing a lot more of those.

Tamsin will be talking about Sexual Harassment and #MeToo at our November Employment Law Update so come along and meet her.

Pay & Reward

You’ve perhaps noticed that nowadays we’re talking about Pay & Reward quite a lot!

Get your compensation policies right and you can inspire and motivate your employees. Get it wrong and you’re facing low productivity, recruitment and retention problems.  And probably people being rewarded for the wrong behaviours.  We’re here to make sure you get it right, every time.

Led by Jane Baalam, we can help you to design and implement pay structures that fit your organisation’s needs, direction and culture.  We now offer a wide range of Pay & Reward services, including:

  • Equal Pay audits and advice
  • Gender Pay Gap audits and advice
  • Pay structure advice
  • Remuneration Committee advice
  • Job Evaluation
  • Salary benchmarking

If you’d like to attend Jane’s next seminar “Pay Equality: a brave new world.  Claims, risks and solutions” then you can book here.
