Employment Law Update: October 2022

Friday 28th October 2022

Welcome back to our employment law update. Scroll down to learn more about this month’s employment law focuses. From dress policy to investigation reports and more…

Why You Should Rely On Lawyers For Your Legal Advice

The reason is that advice from non-lawyers is not covered by legal advice privilege as concluded by the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) in the case of Trentside Manor Care Limited & others v Raphael (2022).

Is Your Dress Policy Liable For Discrimination?

If your dress policy requires menopausal women to wear uncomfortable or poorly designed uniforms, you could face claims of indirect discrimination and even discrimination arising from a disability.

Original Investigation Report Not Protected By Legal Privilege

A grievance investigation report did not attract legal advice privilege when a later version of the report, which had been amended by the employer’s solicitors, was disclosed during tribunal proceedings.
