Employment Law - Coronavirus Update
Nigel Tillott Head of Davies and Partners Employment Law Department on the latest Coronavirus Update:
"I hope that you are all safe and well. Matters seem to be moving very rapidly now. Yesterday there was an announcement about restrictions on the use of the Employment Tribunal system. Today there has been an announcement that there will be no hearings involving personal attendance from Monday. For now, in relation to those already listed there will be a telephone discussion to work out the best way forward.
The reality is that an already much creaking and delayed Tribunal system will grind to a halt unless emergency law changes can be put in place to allow hearings to take place remotely.
I will continue to keep you informed of the ever-changing picture in the employment world.
Unprecedented times. Take care!"
