Getting personal – directors’ liability
A recent case has potentially opened the door for directors to be personally liable for decisions they take that flout the law and damage business reputation. Next time you consider the commercial option not to follow employment laws – take advice to ensure that decision doesn’t come back to bite you personally!
Father’s fare for sharing the caring
If you provide mothers enhanced maternity pay, a recent case has found there is no need to offer fathers (or mothers) the same enhanced pay during shared parental leave. If you still want to enhance shared parental pay go ahead – but you don’t have to by law.
Time and attendance for all?
Momentum continues to grow around the European decision that employers should be recording all workers time and attendance, not just time absent from work. Next it’s for the UK government to decide how to implement this into our Working Time Regulations. That being said, Brexit could still throw a spanner in the works…watch this space!
