Clifton Ingram’s Wills & Inheritance team continues its expansion with the appointment of solicitor Tyla Robins
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic the mass closure of shops, pubs, leisure centres and offices has resulted in much uncertainty over the position of landlords and tenants of commercial premises. Tenants are concerned with how they are going to pay their rent and landlords have to grapple with reduced or even nil income.
The unmistakable hints of Christmas that are appearing in shops are signaling that 2017 is nearing its close.
With next year just around the corner, employers are being urged to make preparations for one major shake-up that will take effect in May 2018.
We first mentioned the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) back in our winter 2016 edition of Citation. The GDPR will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) as the prevailing legislation in the UK for data protection, and will apply to all organisations that process, handle and store any personal data of EU residents.
Love it or loathe it, the intensity of this summer's spell of sunshine and high temperatures took many by surprise.
And let’s assume that summer is not over. Are you set up to handle yet more hot days, sunny rays, and a distracted workforce? Employers are expected to be ‘reasonable’.
The recent employment law case of Grange v Abellio London Ltd was about workers’ entitlement to take at least 20 minutes’ rest after six hours’ work. It looked at when an employer will, and will not, be said to have denied a worker that right.
The Government recently published a list of 359 organisations that failed to pay the National Minimum or National Living Wage. Naming and shaming non-compliant employers is part of a push towards ensuring that UK workers are paid their full entitlement. The publicity, as well as the fines that are imposed, sends a very strong message: understand the rules and apply them properly.
Now that the baubles and bubbles are done for another year, it’s time to settle back into the swing of moderation.
But for some employees, the aftermath of Christmas is about more than just calorie-counting and quiet nights in. Some find themselves in the midst of a disciplinary because of their antics during the festive season.
