Employment Law Newsletter

June 4, 2010

Welcome to Field Court Chambers’ third Employment Law Newsletter.

Following the dramatic results of the general election and the coalition government now in place, it will be fascinating to see what employment legislation finds its way into the forthcoming Queen’s Speech. A number of Acts were passed in the pre-election sweep-up, including the long-awaited Equality Act 2010.

The newest member of our employment team, Sami Rahman, an experienced employment barrister for the past 14 years, summarises this historic consolidating Act in an article on page 5 of this newsletter. Most provisions come into force on 1 October 2010, and Field Court Chambers will be hosting an explanatory seminar on the Act just four days later.

Places are also filling up fast for “The Law of Unfair Dismissal – an essential guide” seminar on 15 June 2010, so if you have not yet booked your places for this, be sure to do so.

We hope you continue to find this newsletter informative, and as always, we welcome your feedback.
