Monthly Employment Financial Services 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. We also set out some of the legislative changes happening on 6 April in order that you can plan ahead.
