UK Employment Law - The View from Mayer Brown
The first of the cases considered in this podcast episode looks at a difficult disciplinary process, and the consequences for the employer of failing to comply with its duties. The second one looks at holiday pay and whether the employee could claim back pay for untaken holiday since 1999. The final case considers what payment or other benefit has to be given to an existing employee in return for agreeing to be bound by new restrictive covenants. To follow Nick on Twitter, please go to Nicholas Robertson@NicholasRober11, to receive links to all the cases mentioned.
