Clarification by Employment Appeal Tribunal of employers’ obligations to provide written particulars of employment
The EAT in Stefanko and others v Maritime Hotel Ltd held that an employee is entitled to a statement of particulars of employment even if they have worked for less than two months, provided they have completed one month of continuous employment.
Section 1(2) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 sets out an employee's right to receive a written statement of employment setting out the main terms of their employment, whether they work full or part time.
Government loses indirect discrimination appeal
A claim was brought by around 230 judges challenging the government’s decision forcing younger judges to leave the judicial pension scheme. Members closest to retirement age were permitted to remain on the scheme, whilst younger judges were transferred to a less generous scheme.
