Employment

The Employment service is both pragmatic and commercial. It works closely with clients to deliver the best solution for their organisation whilst helping them to take advantage of opportunities, better managing risk and reduce legal expenditure. Work in non-UK jurisdictions is managed through the firm's membership of Lawrope and Labor Law Plus as well as its network of specially selected law firms.

Without prejudice, protected conversations and unfair dismissal

It has always been difficult for an employer to hold a genuine without prejudice discussion with an employee with whom they had no existing dispute which needed settling. This difficulty prompted the government to introduce legislation to allow pre-termination discussions. Pre-termination discussions if held within the confines of the relevant legislation and in accordance with the ACAS code of practice, cannot be referred to in unfair dismissal proceedings but can be taken into account in discrimination and breach of contract claims. However, can an employer ever reveal elements of a without prejudice or protected conversation in an unfair dismissal claim whilst still maintaining other elements? We report on a recent Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) case.
