Labour & European Law Review
20 September 2012
The government last week announced yet more employment law reforms which amount to a charter for employers to ambush and bully workers into leaving their jobs, Thompsons has said.
It is well established in case law that, to be an employee, there has to be “mutuality of obligation” between the parties.
To succeed in a claim of unfair dismissal, claimants have to show that their employer committed a fundamental breach of contract (among other things).
