Employment Law Bulletin September 2015

Tuesday 29 September 2015

Welcome

We’re back after our summer break, fully-rested and ready to grapple with more employment law issues.

We have updates for you on several hardy employment law perennials – including Tribunal fees, misconduct and social media and agency workers’ rights. And no round-up would be complete without a Working Time Regulations case, and we are as ever happy to oblige…

The biggest single change to the employment law system since the 1970s has been the introduction of employment tribunal fees. Since the fees were introduced the trade union, UNISON, has been seeking to challenge the legality of the fee regime in the hope of persuading the courts to strike it down. However, their latest claim has now been rejected by the Court of Appeal.
