Legal Updates for the Retail Motor Industry

Winter 2020

For the first time in a year or so (at least) and with Brexit seemingly settled, we can finally report that legislative gridlock will soon be easing, which in turn is likely to mean further statutory developments in employment law.

Autumn 2019

As we experience another season of legislative gridlock, we are looking again this Autumn at case law developments in the update below.

Briefly in other news: In recent weeks, you may have seen the recent round of publications of gender pay gap reports. The slight increase in the gender pay gap appears to be concerning and has increased the call from some for stricter compliance measures and the extension gender pay gap reporting to smaller firms.

Summer 2019

Summer is a relatively quiet time for Employment law legislation. This year perhaps even more so, with the Government’s energy all taken up in another matter...

Spring 2019

In our Winter update, we covered some of the key developments planned for 2019.

Summer 2018

In this seasons update, whilst many of our clients continue to wrestle with the introduction of the GDPR and drafting continues apace, we have decided in this update to review some recent case law updates, including the recent high publicity Supreme Court decision in the case of Pimlico Plumbers v Smith which will have wide ranging implications for employers, particularly those reliant on subcontracting.

Spring 2018

Those of you who read the Winter bulletin will know that April has been (as is often the case) a busy month in employment law. We have seen increases to the national minimum wage rates, the gender pay gap reporting obligations biting for private sector employers and a change to the taxation of termination payments.

Winter 2018

It’s January, so rather than following the usual format, in this season’s update we thought it may be more useful to give clients an overview of some of the key developments in employment law to look out for in 2018 (most of which follow in the spring).
