February Bulletin

Our bulletin this month looks at the Small Business Commissioner now open for business and its focus on disincentivising poor payment practices, updates on recent Data Security case law including one case that gives a stark warning to employers using covert video surveillance and a recent case against Morrisons Supermarket.  We highlight key points from new guidelines on obtaining and demonstrating valid consent under the General Data Protection Regulation, important amendments to the Employment Rights Act allowing employers to have frank conversations with employees without the risk of these being used in a subsequent court or tribunal and updates on employee dismissals due to a reorganisation and the new e-learning package launched by The Competition and Markets Authority to identify bid-rigging.
