An article on the new requirements and how Emplaw Online provides the learning to support continuing competence and the tools to record and evaluate it.

Click here for an article by Moorcrofts following the recently reported case of Snell v Network Rail Infrastructure Limited where the ET found that the employer’s policy of offering enhanced shared parental leave pay to mothers but not to fathers or the mother’s partner amounted to sex discrimination. This article explores the grounds for the decision and its potential impact for other employers.

This was among the findings of recent research by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). This article focuses on one part of that jigsaw, namely the employer's health and safety obligations to pregnant women and breast feeding mothers. Meanwhile the recent ET finding of indirect sex discrimination against easyJet is a reminder of the employment law consequences of failing to comply.
