Published 22 November 2019

We’re on the run in to the General Election on 12 December now and the respective political parties are beginning to publish their manifestos.  Over the next few weeks the editorial will take a sneak peek at what each party is proposing bring to the workplace if they are elected.  Firstly, this week we look at the proposals in the Labour Manifesto, which are broad to say the least, details can be found here(1)  As even the most blinkered sceptics begin to accept that the Climate Emergency is not only real but now incredibly serious (the key is in the title) even businesses are taking matters into their own hands.  Such was the case for Intelligent Hand Dryers who came to public attention earlier in the year when they banned the ‘single use plastics’ in the workplace under threat of dismissal.  Their adoption of this admirable moral position on a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ basis however, garnered the usual stiff upper English eyebrow and raised the question, ‘When can an employer impose their morals on their workforce?’   The Employment Law arguments are visited here(2)  

 

Finally, recent statistics consistently demonstrate that approximately 1 in 10 of the current workforce is involved in the ‘gig economy,’ that is temporary and often lone work. But in the absence of a recognisable boss, who carries the responsibility for Health & Safety?  Brodies takes a look at some the issues here(3)
