longer commuteSeptember has seen the return of the school-run for some, and of slower commutes for all!  The Government is also back to its normal routine after its generous summer recess – TUPE changes are confirmed, waiver of Employment Tribunal fees for the less wealthy is coming in October, and we have more guidance on the Employee Shareholder scheme. The Courts have also been busy and we cover cases on (1) disability discrimination and how to make reasonable adjustments for disability-related sick leave (2) the extent of the right to be accompanied and (3) redundancy payments and refusal of suitable alternative employment.
