News 21 - 26 September 2019

Published 27 September 2019

This week’s edition takes a cursory look at two issues with wide ranging implications for contemporary Employment Law.  The first is a look at when do the protections afforded to an employee who has made ‘protected disclosures’ come into effect?  This comes on the back of the ‘Bilsbrough vs Berry Marketing Services’ decision.  In this case the employer suspended and then dismissed the employee after learning that they were ‘researching’ a possible future ‘protected  disclosure’ to the relevant prescribed body.  The Employment Tribunal found in the ‘whistleblowers’ favour.(1)   Secondly, a recent ruling in a discrimination claim has shed some light on the philosophical differences between vegetarianism and veganism, in Employment Law, perhaps?  The Tribunal decision in question has held that vegetarianism didn’t meet the threshold for consideration as a ‘philosophical belief’ under the Equality Act 2010.  However, the decision held that Veganism might pass the same test as it refutes animal exploitation coherently in a way that vegetarianism does not.(2)
