This month’s edition is a bumper summer read. Government departments seemed to hasten to publish proposals and we set out the various new plans, consultations and responses and explain the context for each. Meanwhile key cases this month include useful guidance from the EAT on the law around whistleblowing, and from the Supreme Court on restrictive covenants and the blue pencil test. There are also cases dealing with practical workplace issues such as covert recording of meetings and whether agency workers have the right to the same hours as the hirer’s employees.
The next edition of Emplaw Monthly will be in September.
