What Does "Freedom Day" Really Mean for Employers?
Shoosmiths LLP, July 2021

Exactly 480 days after the first lockdown measures were introduced in England, 19 July – the so-called Freedom Day - will see the most significant easing of COVID-related measures in England since the pandemic began. But what will this mean for employers? Despite all the propaganda, it is unlikely that in years to come 19 July 2021 will be marked, remembered and celebrated as Freedom Day. Many have raised concerns that the easing of restrictions is coming too soon, when not enough people have received a vaccination, the thresholds for herd immunity have not yet been reached and the number of cases of the Delta variant are increasing...

Planning a Foreign Holiday for the Family this Summer?
Shoosmiths LLP, July 2021

The school holidays are almost here and many of us are thinking about travelling abroad. If your surname is different from your dependent children, then the ever-changing COVID-19 travel restrictions aren’t the only concern to consider when making your holiday plans. The rise of ‘blended’ families and couples choosing not to marry means it is not unusual for a parent to have a different surname to their dependent children...

Quarterly Case Law Update: July 2021
Shoosmiths LLP, July 2021

In our third quarterly case law update for 2021, we look at some of the key cases published since April 2021 and consider the lessons we can learn from them. Health and Safety Related Dismissals Over the past six months, we have seen the emergence of a series of cases related to health and safety dismissals. Unsurprisingly, several of these relate to Covid-19. Section 100 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA) provides protection to employees who are dismissed in several health and safety contexts. There is no period of qualifying service for employees to bring a claim for automatic unfair dismissal under this section...

Rent Recovery and Commercial Leases – The Current Position
Shoosmiths LLP, June 2021

Following the latest government announcements, where do landlords and tenants stand in relation to the recovery of rent unpaid during the Coronavirus pandemic? The simple answer is there is a significant degree of uncertainty, and an awful lot of detail around the government’s proposals and that has yet to be resolved. Summary of the current position Following the government’s announcement on 16 June 2021 outlining its intentions (some of the detail of which is considered further below) what we do know is: Landlords and tenants will be legally obliged to negotiate rent relief packages and to submit to binding arbitration if agreement cannot be reached...

Whistleblowing in the COVID-19 era – The Public Interest Test
Shoosmiths LLP, June 2021

In our previous article we set out what kind of information needs to be disclosed for it to qualify as a protected disclosure. Here we look at another key requirement, that the person making the disclosure reasonably believes it is in the public interest. What is (or is not) in the ‘public interest’ is not defined in legislation, and subsequently it can be difficult to determine. It will be especially difficult to decide whether something is in the public interest where the person making the disclosure also has their own personal interest in it...
