2 July 2012
This July Update examines the options open to an employer that discovers an employee's gross misconduct after exercising its right to terminate by making a payment to the employee in lieu of their notice. In addition we review a case on the "worker" status of an LLP partner and the FSA's decision to issue a prohibition notice as a consequence of the judge's findings in a high profile team-poaching case. Finally, we take a look at the Government's proposals in relation to settlement agreements, collective redundancy consultation and compulsory equal pay audits.
