Workplace Law – December 2023

Welcome to December’s Workplace Law. In this edition (and next month’s) we will be sharing with you an in-depth video in two parts focussing on an employee bringing an employment tribunal claim, what it means to bring a claim, the process, benefits, drawbacks and how we can provide assistance to you.

This month you’ll also find a selection of articles including guidance for employers on sexual harassment in the workplace and redundancy consultations, plus the retention of EU law derived equality rights as well as an invitation to our virtual HR Club taking place next month. If you have any questions about any of the topics raised in Workplace Law, please do get in touch

What an employee should consider before bringing an employment tribunal claim

In part one of this video series, Nick Hobden and Jessica Wells discuss what an employee should consider before bringing an employment tribunal claim, the steps they need to take, commencing a claim and preliminary hearings.  Tune into part two in January’s Workplace Law where Nick and Jessica will then discuss the final hearing stage.
