Diary: Discrimination claims way down
The headline stat for the employment tribunal statistics covering October to December 2013 is that overall tribunal claims were down 79% compared with the comparable period in 2012, before tribunal fees were introduced. This confirms the trend seen in the previously released figures for August and September 2013. (...more) (22 Mar 2014)

Post-employment victimisation covered by Equality Act
The Court of Appeal rules that the Equality Act 2010 does allow victimisation claims in respect of acts that take place after the employment relationship has ended. Although the meaning of s.108(7) of the Equality Act is unclear, it does not have the effect of excluding claims for post-employment victimisation. The Court holds that such a result would clearly have been contrary to the intentions of Parliament and to the requirements of EU law.

In March's issue (EOR 246)
This month we focus on gender equality and equal pay. Our main feature is an update on equal pay cases by Brian Napier QC, and we have two case studies on gender equality. (...more) (21 Feb 2014)
