Latest News

With the national lockdown down firmly entrenched this weeks news looks at a greater variety of issues affecting employment matters.  The emphasis though has definitely shifted to the impact of the recently negotiated Brexit Trade Deal, a skillful Public Relations exercise little else conveniently reached in time for Santa to do his rounds at Christmas.  Now that the dust (and in many cases the snow) has settled and tired eyes have had a chance to scrutinise the detail of the agreement, a wealth of issues are being discussed…panic is the work which comes to mind.


Happy New Year to you all and we kick off the first news of 2021 with a catch up on the last two weeks of December and the first few days of the year.

This week is the last full round up of Employment News for 2020.  Without wanting to mumble too many over sentimental platitudes I think its fair to say that this year has been filled with Gremlins, shown us all that its not always A Wonderful Life but no doubt there’s still room for a large brandy and a Christmas Carol to see off the end of the year.

So here’s the news for the last two weeks and we’ll cover the rest in the New Year.

We have more updates in this News run about the ongoing COVID juggle.  As always we also have the usual spread of Case Law and other legislative goodies for your delectation.


So let’s start with the government’s arbitrary determination that as of 2 December 2020, the Coronavirus will no longer recognise, ‘extremely clinically vulnerable’ people as vulnerable. (1)


This week as the second lockdown picks up steam, we’ll look at more Coronavirus focussed stories but with the usual scattering of other employment tales of note.

This week we look at the government’s new return to the furlough scheme along with the usual smattering of stories across a range of Employment issues, hitting our windscreens this week at very high speed with the wipers on full.

Really helpful and informative company!

I'm really surprised and impressed by the help they gave me. Surprised because they gave a genuine free legal advice within an hour of me sending in my inquiry.


Had a query related to redundancy and the way my employer had been treating me. They were very helpful.


Prompt respond and good advice.


It was a very stressful time at work for me, where I was being victimised. I was absolutely devastated by the whole situation.



Excellent and speedy advice just what I needed
