Welcome to the latest newsletter from the Employment Team at 9 Park Place Chambers.

In this month’s edition, Cerys Walters looks at the potential impact of the Government’s recent proposal to “buy out” employees’ rights; Phillip Morris analyses a recent Court of Appeal decision which will be of interest to all solicitors’ firms operating as an LLP; Jonathan Headington provides an interesting piece on the growing phenomenon of employees’ use of social media at work; and Leah Pollard reminds us of two important proposed changes in employment law announced recently, in the reduction of the cap on unfair dismissal awards and the introduction of new settlement agreements allowing for “protected conversations”.
As always, please don’t hesitate to call us to find out more about, or book a place at, any of our upcoming seminars or lectures.  Don’t forget you can see previous editions of all our newsletters on our website by clicking here.
