Published 13 August 2021

Evening all, here’s this weeks somewhat scant news.

We start this week with caselaw on the use of a Health & Safety defence in a COVID-related dismissal.(1)

The TUC has announced that it is not being consulted over ‘back to work’ safety plans, which is to be expected but not considered acceptable.(2)

We have some caselaw relating to sexual harassment, which will almost certainly be cited by future workplace sex-pests.(3)

We have an article which looks at the proposed role of the Worker’s Watchdog, its remit and authority.(4)

We have an article which reflects on ‘hybrid working’ after the lifting of most COVID restrictions.(5)  

We finish this week with an excellent article by the TUC which proposes permanent short time working in the post furlough employment landscape.(6)
