UK Employment Law - The View from Mayer Brown
Nick reviews three cases, all decided in the EAT. The first looks at whether an employee had lost the chance to bring a claim against the employer because she had taken sick pay over a prolonged period after the alleged claim arose. The second considers whether an English tribunal could hear a whistleblowing claim from an employee outside the UK and the third is a helpful case for employers on calculating compensation following a finding of unlawful victimisation.

Mayer Brown Legal Update
The final version of the charges cap regulations were published last week and are due to come into force on 6 April. Broadly, they will impose a 0.75% cap on charges in money purchase default arrangements. But the regulations give an unexpectedly wide meaning to "default arrangement" in this context, and they will in fact apply to investment options that one wouldn’t normally think of as default funds. Trustees of all schemes where money purchase contributions are still being accepted should consider whether they need to take urgent steps in order to comply.
