Looking Back/Looking Forward: a COVID-free Employment Law Update


Employment law cases and legislation continue outside of the current pandemic-related emergency measures. We review the key (non-COVID-19) employment law developments from the past 12 months and look forward to what we can expect in the year ahead, enabling you to plan effectively.Topics likely to be included:

  • Legislative changes including changes to s1 statements and the introduction of bereavement leave.
  • Changes relating to the taxation of termination payments and the cost impact for employers.
  • Where are we now with IR35 and the off-payroll rules.
  • Data privacy: the latest on data breach cases and employees covertly recording HR meetings.
  • Case law round-up: our usual highlights from the key unfair dismissal, TUPE and contract cases of the last 12 months and the big cases coming up in the next 12 months, including the long-running employment status case of Uber and the Asda equal pay claim.
