Current employment law issues faced by in-house lawyers

Recent legislative changes to employment law have been much heralded and debated. In this practical session, chaired by Andrew Burns QC, we took stock and examined what impact some of these developments have had in practice.

With a focus on the needs of in-house lawyers, three members of Devereux’s leading employment team reviewed the new “public interest” test for protected disclosures and its development in recent appellate decisions; tok an in-depth look at privilege and whether protected conversations have really changed the way lawyers do business as well as discuss recent developments in causation across whistleblowing and victimisation claims. 

  • Alice Mayhew on "Protected disclosures: Nurmohamed and beyond"
  • Talia Barsam on "Admissibility: privilege, prejudice and protected conversations"
  • Kate Balmer on "Causation in victimisation and whistleblowing claims"

The evening seminar took place on 1st December at our offices in Devereux Court.
