Labour & European Law Review
01 May 2008
The 'employment gap' between black and ethnic minority (BME) and white workers is closing steadily, but BME poverty rates are still nearly twice as high, according to a new report “Ten Years After” by the TUC.
By law, employers have to seriously consider a request for part-time working from someone returning from maternity leave.
The law states that if employers fail to consult when they propose to make 20 or more employees redundant, they can claim for a protective award of up to 90 days’ pay.
