The claimant was dismissed by reason of gross misconduct and in particular.
In a situation where the employer’s doctor and the employee’s doctor both deem the employee unfit for work but the insurance company which is paying out income protection to the employee deems him fit for work, must the employer make reasonable accommodation to enable the employee to return to work with limited capability?
In a situation when an employee makes a protected disclosure and subsequently, while the protected disclosure is being investigated goes on sick leave due to stress, could a lowering of the employee's income because they will be paid illness benefit (which is lower than their normal salary) constitute penalisation of the person making the protected disclosure?
If employees go to a bar after an official workplace social event and have an argument, should the altercation be considered a workplace issue?
Where a claim of bullying is made, can an employee refer back to incidents that took place several years ago?
Has there been an update with regard to parental leave and raising the age of eligibility to 12 years?
At what stage in the recruitment process can an employer check a potential employee’s social media profiles?
If a complaint of bullying forms part of a protected disclosure must we conduct two separate investigations?
If a person reaches their contractual retirement age and the employer requires them to stay on for a particular reason, is it correct that only one fixed term contract can be issued?
We have caught two employees slacking at work. Can we run the disciplinary hearings together as one and must we give them the same penalty, assuming both are found guilty?
One of our employees committed an offence at work two days after a previous warning expired for a similar misdemeanour. Is it lawful to take the old warning into account? It’s only two days after the expiry of the warning but the hearing might not be able to be held for a couple of weeks, so it will really be 14-16 days after expiry before we can make any decision.
