Employment Law Newsletter

February 17, 2010

Welcome to Field Court Chambers’ second Employment Law Newsletter.

In this issue the employment team cover a number of important discrimination law decisions, especially those concerning the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and religious discrimination, as well as an important case on stigma damages in discrimination cases. We also cover caselaw on employee status, the application of the Protection from Harassment Act to employment situations and employees’ rights to take their full holiday entitlement before the yearend.

In our legislation update section, we cover this year’s changes in compensation caps and the Damages Based Agreements Regulations 2010, prescribing the maximum percentage of contingency fees and the information that must be provided to a client for such agreements to be valid.

We hope you find this issue useful and informative. Thank you to those who provided feedback on the first issue. All feedback on this issue is welcome. Finally, please note our forthcoming seminars. We look forward to seeing many of you on 15 June and 5 October.
