Articles, News and Features

News this month includes Cloisters’ report to the TUC on the legal implications of artificial intelligence systems in the post-pandemic workplace, as well as latest covid updates including the proposed end to temporary adjustments to right to work checks and the consultation on making COVID vaccination a condition of work in care homes. Cases this month include two involving consideration of the European Convention on Human Rights, one  being a decision by the Court of Appeal that foster carers can form a union, as to rule otherwise would breach Article 11 (freedom of assembly) and a decision by the European Court of Human Rights that a mandatory vaccination programme was not a breach of Articles 8 and 9 ( respect for private life and freedom of thought). The latter is particularly interesting in COVID times but very fact specific.  

Q&As from Emplaw authors Gowling WLG as the CJRS is extended until 30th September 2021 and the latest Treasury Direction was published on 15th April 2021.
