In the latest edition of the Employment Update:

  • Lucy McLynn addresses some common questions and misconceptions about the calculation of holiday pay. 
  • Paul Seath looks at the differences between secondment and joint employment and considers the potential costs and pitfalls of each.
  • New rules require bonus payments to be subject to clawback in certain circumstances. William Garnett argues that clawback has potentially wider applications.
  • Following the recent Kaltoft case, the European Court of Justice has concluded that obesity may amount to a disability. Louise McCartney looks at the impact of this decision. 
  • Protecting intellectual property is vital but the law surrounding it is often misunderstood. Mindy Jhittay takes a detailed look at how businesses can make sure they really own what they think they own. 
  • A recent Employment Appeal Tribunal considered the question of whether actors are ‘workers’ and therefore entitled to holiday pay and the national minimum wage. Paul Jennings, who successfully advocated on behalf of the theatre director in the case, explores what we can learn from the outcome. 
  • Daniel Penman rounds up the latest significant employment law cases and key legislation.
