Monthly Employment Commercial Newsletter - March 2014

Published 4 March 2014

This month we have wide ranging cases to report on from illegal working to post TUPE harmonisation. One particularly interesting case concerns whether an employer could rely on its wording in a contract to dismiss summarily for theft, which was gross misconduct for unfair dismissal purposes. The EAT found they could not and the employee was wrongfully dismissed because the "theft" had not been deliberate. On the subject of contractual wording we've also had a case from the EAT where, because a contract was not sufficiently clear on what happened to accrued flexi-time on termination of employment, an employee ended up not being paid for over 1000 hours of work. We also set out some of the legislative changes happening on 6 April in order that you can plan ahead.
