Labour & European Law Review
09 February 2012
The TUC has this week published a report calling on the government to make pay and bonuses above £262,000 liable for corporation tax.
Using data from the Labour Force Survey, Bonus Season shows that 36 per cent of employees earning more than £250,000 a year in the UK work in banking and finance.
The 1998 Working Time Regulations (WTR) state that all workers have the right to paid annual leave every year. In Russell and ors v Transocean International Resources Ltd and ors, the Supreme Court said that there was nothing in the legislation to stop offshore employers insisting that workers take their paid annual leave during periods onshore.
Employees at risk of redundancy have the right to know the criteria against which they will be scored and to see their scores. In Camelot Group plc v Hogg, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) said that did not mean that if an employee challenged the redundancy criteria, they had the right to see whatever documentation they asked for before the decision was taken to dismiss them.
