- Addiction is not new but there is now much greater awareness of its impact in the workplace and a recognition that the workplace may contribute to, for example, substance abuse. Half of UK adults drink too much. Ten per cent of adults have used illicit drugs in the past year, including 'smart drugs'. While most of us like a flutter, there are around half a million compulsive gamblers in the UK. The odds are that most HR professionals will deal with the consequences of addictive behaviour.
- When a disabled job applicant or employee is ‘substantially’ disadvantaged, the employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments. The difficulty is that what is ‘reasonable’ depends upon the circumstances of each case, and upon the size and resources of the employer. In addition, line-managers are frequently asked to consider a range of individual requests for flexibility which may appear to amount to ‘special treatment’.
- In recognition of the rising expectations judges have of an employer's investigation process and documentation, and the ever increasing complexity of some employee investigations, more and more organisations are recognising that the conduct of investigations is a specialist role, and developing in-house teams of dedicated management investigators.
- The consumer law framework in the UK has undergone major reform which directly affects further and higher education providers and the “student contract”. This legislative reform has come at the same time as scrutiny by the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) of higher education providers’ compliance with consumer law as it applies to the student contract.
- Although there are similarities, it is dangerous to consider the German and Austrian employment law systems to be one and the same. Austrian law is distinct in many ways, most importantly in relation to probationary periods, the termination of employment contracts and severance. There are also sufficient differences in contract law to make the use of one model employment contract, for German and Austrian employees, a potentially expensive error for employers.
- This Avoiding victimisation briefing will cover: - what victimisation is and is not - detriments that amount to victimisation - getting over a disagreement: rebuilding trust - 'baseless grievances’: serious implications of incorrect handling - case examples and significant penalties
- An employer found guilty of discrimination by a Belgian court can face a sentence of up to one year in prison. There is no concept of redundancy in Belgium and no concept of unfair dismissal either.
- This Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management training course is relevant to HR and recruitment professionals from Tier 2 and 5 sponsors (including potential sponsors) who use the sponsor management system or have responsibility for a sponsor licence. Knowledge of the points-based system is assumed.
Central and Eastern European HR: employment law in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and SlovakiaThe Central and Eastern European ("CEE") countries have distinctive employment law frameworks which an increasing number of HR practitioners and in-house lawyers must come to terms with.
- Education providers who employ or who wish to employ and sponsor migrant workers need to be Tier 2 sponsor licence holders.
